Milk Duds 1986
ABOUT THIS IMAGE
MILK DUDS was shot in the back row of our Studio 6A. Ted, who was an intern, wears the jacket while embracing one of the producers. You can see that this was a prop jacket that we used for a few early bumpers. Once Dave saw this image, he had jackets make with this logo and gave them to the entire staff and crew for Christmas. Over the years, the tail logo was used within the show in many ways. The logo itself was inspired one night while in the NBC art department watching SNL. All of the MLB logos were on a table for NBC Sports and I drew Late Night in the style of the Baltimore Orioles and thought we could put it on a letterman jacket.
'With David Letterman' was hand drawn in yellow paint onto the chromogenic master print.
