Payne is taking part in "Illustration Now." In his 30-year-career, Payne's illustrations have graced the covers of countless magazines including Time, Sports Illustrated, Atlantic Monthly and the one and only MAD Magazine. This guy's got some serious artistic chops.  Today's talk at the Wilde Auditorium is free. From 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
