Happy Birthday Billy Mays
A couple months ago I drew the Shamwow Guy for a theme park sample (pictured below). A few people at work said, "Now you have to do Billy Mays!" I would say, "Nah, the Shamwow Guy is funnier."
But then God (or whomever) granted Mays' wish to meet McMahon, Fawcett and MJ, so the time was right to get him on our wall. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would draw not one, but two pitchmen/infomercial dudes. However, I really wanted to do Ron Popeil years ago, but decided against it when I figured not enough people would recognize him.
