Jonathan Bresman

About the Author

Jonathan Bresman is MAD Magazine’s senior editor in charge of developing new talent. What has he done to deserve such a punishment? Well, in previous incarnations he’s served as a conceptual researcher on Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace, as’s production correspondent, and as the author of the book The Art of Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace. Bresman was also Creative Director of Vis-a-vis/Kerplink, an animation and design firm where he co-created award-winning cartoon properties. Additionally, he supervised concept design projects for clients such as Mainframe, Hasbro and LeapFrog, and e-learning animations for companies such as Oracle, Pfizer and Autodesk. Back in his undergraduate days at Harvard, Bresman interned for The Late Show with David Letterman, Lucasfilm, MAD, Marvel Comics and Valiant Comics, and studied animation writing at the American Film Institute’s Television Writers Workshop. He also has a master’s degree in Communication and Education from Columbia University’s Teachers College. Now that he is a member of MAD’s “Usual Gang of Idiots” he wonders if it’s not too late to become a nice doctor or lawyer.
