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 and is always enthusiastic about seeing his shows lampooned in the magazine. After getting wind somehow of the publication of the parody in MAD #503, Mr. Lorre contacted MAD and subsequently me about getting the art from the splash page for his offices. Like his show “2 and a Half Men”, we made an arrangement that included me sending an over-sized print of the splash to get signatures from the cast members and Mr. Lorre as well.

Here is the result, again soon to be hanging in the newly remodeled studio ( I added the signature “keys”):

Awesome! I’m actually a big fan of the show. This will be great to hang in the studio and stare at while I am procrastinating.

    That’s cool, Tom! Love the show as well, and really enjoyed the artwork in the magazine. I have a subscription, but it’s pretty much just for yours and Mark Fredrickson’s artwork.

    How fun is that?! Cool, Tom! We’re fans of the show in our house, and got our copy of MAD with the parody last week. Looks great. Mr. Lorre is no doubt a happy man.

    Very cool, Tom! I always watch that show. I haven’t bought the magazine, but I read that part while I was at the book store last week….that was the only part that really drew my attention.
