With another year of the Stern Show in the history books, it’s time to take a look back at everything that happened, but this time through the lens of the talented artists in our audience.
Check out some of the impressive pieces of fan art from 2017 (below).
The Stern Show staff provided ample inspiration for fan artwork this year.
Howard’s cohost Robin Quivers had a number of standout moments, including a renewed dedication to her music career.
Moreover, when she wasn’t singing her heart out, Robin was still making music by way of her beloved collection of wind chimes.
And she had a … unique method for watching the rare solar eclipse in August.
Richard Christy, meanwhile, made the surprise announcement in May that he would be having a son, setting off a wave of celebratory works of art.
JD Harmeyer had equally exciting news when he announced—albeit on Twitter—that he proposed to his girlfriend and she said yes!
Brent Hatley also turned heads with his ambition to make a citizen’s arrest.

Wack Pack Antics
It’s no surprise that members of the Wack Pack inspired some of the most creative work from the audience.
When Steve from Florida took his Walk of Shame to reclaim the name Bobo, he spurred a slew of artistic renditions of the historic moment.
Furthermore, in July Medicated Pete spent the day selling cars at Legend Auto Group with Wayne Siegel and became the star of quite a few pictures.
Tan Mom had a breakout year in 2017 between her prank call to Howard as “Petunia,” her infatuation with Stern Show staffer “Lemet,” and her memorable reaction to finding Richard and Sal in a compromising position.

With the entire month of October renamed as Cocktober featuring cock-filled events with Richard Christy, Sal Governale, the crowning of Miss Cocktober, and more, it’s no wonder the audience responded with some fitting work.
Hit 'em with the Hein
2017 also saw “Hit ‘em with the Hein,” a catchphrase popularized by Jason Kaplan in honor of his coworker Jon Hein, spread like wildfire from sportscasts to news reports to TV shows and everywhere in between.
I've done many images of Jon.... but this one I like the best. pic.twitter.com/W9HvjIftK1— Doctör Ivan (@DocIvanSFN) November 21, 2017
Additionally, over the course of the year, the Stern Show marked numerous anniversaries.
First, in February, Wendy the Slow Adult celebrated 15 years as a member of the Wack Pack.
Later in the year, the staff honored Richard Christy for his 13 years spent entertaining fans on the show.
And finally, High Pitch Erik commemorated 20 years with Howard.
Rest in Peace
2017 was also a year of sadness with the loss of longtime Wack Packer Nicole Bass in February. Read her full obituary here and check out some of the fan art in her memory (below).
And this is only the tip of the iceberg for the amazing art out there. Thanks to all of the fantastic Stern Show fan artists—see you in 2018!
