Howie Mandel - Studio Mural Projects
Over the last year or so, our Co-Founder and Creative Director, Michael Cook aka Cookie created a series of art installations for Howie Mandel in his production studio. Known all over the world for his comedic nature and leading roles in shows like Deal or No Deal, America's Got Talent and St. Elsewhere, Howie Mandel challenged Cookie to create fun illustrations for the mural concept that represents Howie's wacky personality. Since Cookie is a Los Angeles muralist known for his colorful and textural character designs he was perfect for the job.
The first mural installation was called "Elephant in the room". This mural was developed for Howie's boardroom to show people a more playful side while visiting the studio. Once Cookie finished his first mural installation, Howie Mandel was in Love.
Continuing to fill more of Howie's production studio with more color and characters, the next large project Cookie developed was a colorful abstract wall with a white door. Cookie collaborated with company Engravers Lane to create a Howie Mandel Star on the door.
Lastly, Cookie wrapped up the installation by creating what he fondly calls "Fat Monkey" over the television set. Cookie was back and forth on what Howie wanted over the television and after showing him sketch after sketch, Howie fell in love with the fat monkey. By the end of the productions Howie Mandel was thrilled to see the walls of his production studio coming to life. Cookie tells us that these will definitely not be the last murals he does for Howie Mandel and is planning to do some more wild stuff later this year.
