Simpsons Survey

Brush with Greatness13

“I hope all you kids come out this weekend and really pack this place, just to show ’em how grateful I am.  I told them you would!  Don’t make me a liar.” – Krusty the Klown

Our old friend Philip J. Reed is conducting a survey about the show:

I’ve prepared a very quick 10-question survey that I’d like you to answer if you’ve ever seen The Simpsons.
Seriously; it should be damned quick. If it’s going slowly, it’s because you’re driving yourself insane trying to be comprehensive…so don’t do that. Say what comes to mind, give it a little bit of thought at most, and submit.

This is all a prelude to some other, grander project, but he needs your Simpsons opinions, so you should probably go give them to him:

I just took it.  Didn’t hurt a bit.

“I am going on a diet.  From this day forward, I pledge there will be no pork chop too succulent, no donut too tasty, no pizza too laden with delicious toppings to prevent me from reaching my scientifically determined ideal weight!  As God as my witness, I’ll always be hungry again!” – Homer Simpson

“No, not another portrait of that bongo beating Liverpudlian.” – Mr. Schindler
“But, Mr. Schindler, I-” – Marge Simpson

Drool Worthy Simpsons Art

“Then I’m in the class?” – Marge Simpson
“Oh, my dear, there couldn’t be a class without you!” – Professor Lombardo

There really isn’t a great deal I can add to these amazing drawings, so I’ll let them speak for themselves.  The artist is Tim Doyle; and they’re part of a show he’s got going in San Francisco.  You can read all about it (and see higher resolution images) at his website

Tim Doyle - Night Falls on the SNPP (Small) Tim Doyle - Embiggen the Smallest Man (Small) Tim Doyle - Amanda Hugginkiss (Small)

Click each one for the gorgeously large “original” size.

These are part of a larger series, with images of fake places from everything from Seinfeld and Arrested Development to Sesame Street.  You can get prints of any of them starting at a mere $40 from the gallery’s store.  If you’re in the Bay Area and you want to go see them for yourselves, they’ll be up until February 23rd at Spoke Art in San Francisco
