“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

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

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
