Wall of Shame- SNL!!

June 2nd, 2017 | Posted in Wall of Shame

It’s been a while since something as cool as this has arrived destined for the Wall of Shame. Longtime SNL cast member Bobby Moynihan had an extra copy of the prints he made of my group caricature of the 2016-2017 cast of Saturday Night Live–he gave a print to each cast member as a gift–and had them sign it for me. The above includes signatures from: Top Row, L to R: Kyle Mooney, Leslie Jones, Pete Davidson, Vanessa Bayer, Beck Bennett Desk, L to R: Kenan Thompson, Colin Jost, Michael Che, Cecily Strong Floor L to R: Alex Moffat, Mikey Day, Alec Baldwin, Melissa McCarthy,… READ MORE

The Wall of Shame: Homeland!

November 25th, 2014 | Posted in Wall of Shame

Clicky to Embiggen… When one of the main writers of the Showtime show “Homeland” saw the MAD parody written by David Shayne and drawn by me, he contacted me to ask about getting some prints of the splash page. Naturally I obliged, but I added an extra print asking for some autographs by the cast for me. I just got this beauty in the mail recently, signed by: Damian Lewis (Nicholas Brody) Claire Danes (Carrir Mathison) Maury Sterling (Max) Navid Negahban (Abu Nazir) Morena Baccarin (Jessica Brody) Mandy Patinkin (Saul Berenson) David Harwood (David Estes) Rupert Friend (Peter Quinn) Sadly missing the signatures of the… READ MORE

Wall of Shame- Tenacious D!

September 18th, 2014 | Posted in Wall of Shame

The Wall of Shame has a new resident! This summer Jack Black and Kyle Gass signed autographs at the National Cartoonists Society booth at San Diego Comic Con along with illustrator Luke McGarry, promoting their summer charity music event. I took the opportunity to get them to sign an oversized print of my splash page from the MAD parody “Fools of Rock”, from MAD #438, Feb 2004. I printed a copy out for each of them. Probably used it to line their cat’s litter box. At least I got a nice piece for my studio wall! READ MORE

More on James Gandolfini

Clicky to embiggen… MAD Magazine has been around for a long time, and was both an influence on and/or a favorite of, many kids who later grew up to be famous/influential professionals in film, TV and other entertainments venues. As a result, every once and awhile when I do a TV show or movie parody in the magazine, one of the producers, directors, writer, stars or some other person involved in the creation of the show ends up being one of those kids who loved MAD, and contacts the magazine looking for the original artwork. I am happy to sell it to them, but I… READ MORE

Yet Another One for the Wall of Shame!

April 13th, 2012 | Posted in Wall of Shame

Clicky to Embiggen… I actually received this one earlier than the¬¨‚ĆMike & Molly print I blogged about the other day, but hadn’t had a chance to scan it in yet. This one came courtesy of series star Jim O’Heir, which plays poker with a friend of my friend, caricaturist Jim Batts. I sent two copies of this print to Jim (O’Heir, not Batts), one for him and one for me with the signatures, but he unfortunately had the cast sign what was supposed to be his copy, thus my own signature is on this one, personalized to him. Hmmmm . . . actually that might… READ MORE

The Latest for the “Wall of Shame”

January 12th, 2012 | Posted in Wall of Shame

Clicky to Embiggen It’s been a long time since I got a new piece for the Wall of Shame, but this arrived in the mail the other day and is going to be proudly framed and hung in the studio. For those not familiar with my “Wall of Shame”… I occasionally get calls from the producer, director or some star of a TV show of movie that I did the parody art for in MAD who wants to buy some of the original art. I usually cut a deal that includes my sending them an oversized print of the splash page to get signed by… READ MORE

New Treasure for the Wall of Shame!

March 25th, 2010 | Posted in Wall of Shame

Technically, since I redid my studio the “Wall of Shame” that previously existed on the walls outside my studio now reside inside the studio on several walls… the concept still lives, however. To wit, the newest addition to the “Wall of Shame” just arrived the other day and is on it’s way to the frame shop. After said framing it will proudly hang in the studio as a member of the WOS. In the most recent issue of MAD, I did the art for the parody of the TV show “The Big Bang Theory”. The TV show’s producer, Chuck Lorre, is a fan of MAD… READ MORE

Pick Me Up!

March 20th, 2009 | Posted in Wall of Shame

If I was feeling a little sorry for myself and was down in the dumps about my surgery yesterday, the package I just got in the mail sure cured my blues! Way back when I did a parody of the TV show “Heroes” for MAD, and was contacted by produced Michael Green about buying the original artwork for himself, creator Tim Kring and others that worked on the show. I had gotten hooked on “Heroes” after researching for the parody, so I did my customary deal of getting an oversized print of the splash signed by as many members of the cast as possible. Michael,… READ MORE

New for the “Wall of Shame”

March 13th, 2009 | Posted in Wall of Shame

I’m very busy right now opening up a new aibrush tattoo/caricature location at Mall of Amrica’s “Nick Universe” theme park. However I got this in the mail yesterday which was a fun surprise: Some time back I was contacted by one of the producers of the TV show “Samantha Who?” about buying some of the original art from MAD‘s parody of the show. He bought the original splash page from me. Usually when that happens I get an oversized print of the splash and have some of the people I drew sign it to put on my “Wall of Shame“. Unfortunately that wasn’t possible this… READ MORE

The Wall of Shame: Bill Cosby

November 23rd, 2007 | Posted in Wall of Shame

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something from my Wall of Shame, so I thought it was high time I featured another cool item off the wall. This one is a caricature I did as a theme park sample some years ago of comedy legend Bill Cosby. For those newer readers, the Wall of Shame is an area just outside my studio where The Lovely Anna has framed prints of various pieces I’ve done that, through MAD, good fortune or just dumb luck I’ve had signed by the subjects I’ve caricatured. You can see my other Wall of Shame piece and stories about obtaining… READ MORE

Wall of Shame: Pearls Before Swine

February 14th, 2007 | Posted in Wall of Shame

This piece is the one example of something that is not my own art on the Wall of Shame. Back in August my friend and hilarious syndicated strip cartoonist Stephen Pastis gave me a “cameo” in his popular strip Pearls Before Swine. Here it is again as it appeared in the Sunday funnies: Click for a closer look I told the story about how it came about in this post, but to make a long story short Stephen is a fan of MAD and likes my work. He came up with this gag and sprung it on me when we visited him in Santa Rosa… READ MORE
