Monday MADness- Yell’s Kitchen!

December 29th, 2014 | Posted in Monday MADness

Monday MADnessThis week’s Monday MADness features my artwork from Dick DeBarolo‘s parody of “Hell’s Kitchen” in MAD #470, October 2006. Below are the pencil roughs, final colored art and (bizarrely) the third and forth pages inked and set up in the layout with text in place. I cannot remember why I did that with pages three and four… must have been for a presentation or something demonstrating the pre-color artwork in place. Anyway, clicky any to embiggen:

Panel three features “Pearls Before Swine” cartoonist Stephan Pastis in a payback appearance for my cameo in his strip. I also completely forgot that I drew myself, The Lovely Anna, and our friends Barbie and Keelan Parham as the two couples eating pizza in panel one.

    Thanks for sharing some of those insidery peeks into your work. Stephen Pastis is going to show up in everyone’s work at some point, I think! What a terrible time for me to be on hiatus from MAD! I love Hell’s Kitchen, and I love looking at this, even without the dialogue! Maybe I can write my own!
