In the latest issue of MAD I did the art for a parody of the HGTV show “Fixer Upper”, and rather than draw two generic people as the couple whose house is being renovated I drew in my two good friends Ed and Heather Steckley… sometimes I do things just to amuse myself.
This was not unprecedented. Way back in 2003 I did the art on a Dick DeBartolo written spoof of the show “Trading Spaces”, which featured two couples as the “contestants” (for lack of a better term). That time I drew in two of our neighborhood couples, The McNeils (in the red shirts) and The Gerkins (in the yellow)!
The splash page is above, the rest final art from MAD #435 (Nov 2003):
