I haven’t had to paint any Stefon dolls for a while because the NBC Store was selling a reproduction of them. It freed up my schedule drastically and I get to paint something other than that Ed Hardy shirt over and over again. But I couldn’t say no when I was asked to paint a large Stefon along with some classic SNL characters, ones I more or less grew up watching. It’s too bad the Church Lady didn’t make it into the final cut…that would’ve really finished me off for sure! However, I’m not complaining about what I had to paint.
What a line up! There’s Stefon, of course but then we have Chris Farley as Matt Foley the motivational speaker who “lives in a van down by the river,” Will Ferrell as the “more cowbells” guy, Dan Aykroyd as Irwin Mainway and his Bag O’ Glass, Bill Murray as Nick the Lounge Singer, Tim Meadows as Ladies Man, and my favorite, Adam Sandler as Opera Man.
Speaking of Stefons…it was a shock to look up while watching the new episode of “The Mindy Project” to see my little guy sitting on Seth Meyers’ desk.
I can retire now, right?
