What Kevin Rechin actually did on Extreme Makeover Home Edition

Now that the show has aired, and we saw less than 5 seconds of Kevin at work, let's quote his email about what he actually did, "The room was a superhero-themed room for two of the sons. I basically designed and painted a mural of a cityscape with caricatures of each kid as a superhero incorporated into the scene and also designed personal superhero logos for each kid. These were embroidered on capes for customized costumes and used as decals on a cool car bed built for the show. That's basically it. Keep in mind I had 4 days to come up with the design, get it approved and then had from about 4 p.m. Friday to 2 p.m. the next day to do the whole room with the help of a couple more people. Needless to say it was an all-nighter! Everything done for that show is done for free or as a donation."

The family was the Tripp family of Hyattville, MD and it's episode 717 that you can watch on the Extreme Makeover Home Edition website. I quite liked Kevin's mural, and have invited him to do one in my house. I encourage you all to do the same. This time, we could pay him. Bravo to Kevin for donating his time and creativity to this!
