Hello everyone!β˜…β˜…
Today we bring you the page we did for the Bartkira project – Vol.5. (in addition to the ones we did for Vol.4! Check the post about it β–Ίhereβ—„ )
For those who are not familiar with the project, here’s the description on the Bartkira Roadshow youtube channel:

Bartkira is an animated parody mash-up of The Simpsons and Akira. Based on an idea by Ryan Humphrey articulated through comics, the concept was expanded with the Bartkira project, a comic collaboration of Simpsons fans, curated by James Harvey. In association with the comic, Moon Animate Make-Up producer Kaitlin Sullivan pitched the idea of an animated trailer to match and with the work of over fifty artists, produced the Bartkira animated trailer.

We had a lot of fun once again, as expected, but there was more work involved due to the different characters and rhythm of the action.
Despite the slow pace, this gave us an opportunity to turn what could be considered a “boring” page into something more into the Simpsons’ Universe, but not without being worried on how to translate “Akira” into “Simpsons”.

Squidnapping! Squid smack!

In the end we decided to bring a story within a story, hence the “squidnapping”, making this our favourite page from the ones we made. Well, besides the one with the appearance of Sideshow Bob, because… It’s Sideshow Bob.

Here are some of the stages of the page and also some character studies we did to get a better grip of each one of them.

Being able to disappear for so long shouldn’t be on the list of our… abilities…

Hello there! We’re back on track!
We had a couple of rough months, with some health issues involved and we’re sorry this little blog had to suffer the consequences. Thank you so much for sticking around, we’re going to make up for all this time starting right now!

Without further ado, we would like to share with you our pages for Bartkira! It was an intense, fun project that after this time, we feel like we wanted to do a lot more and still be in that universe… yeah, we mainly wanted to draw more Sideshow Bob. There’s not enough Bob in the world!
