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.

We hope you enjoy them just as much as we enjoyed being part of this project!
Take care, everyone!β˜…β˜…

Leslie’s Happiness

We were pleasantly surprised to watch the latest episode from SouthPark for today’s morning break, and of course the warm up was Leslie.
Not only for the call out to people who get lead astray by fake helpful articles (which in reality are just sponsored ads in the shape of articles), but also by how the writers lead us to this moment of puzzle pieces that finally fit.

It feels like this whole season plays like a movie!
