At work last week we had our own little ‘comic-con’ in the lobby of our studio. Some people were selling their wares while a few tables were set up and manned by actual comic book artists. One such artist was Nina Matsumoto. She does work for, among many other things, The Simpsons.
For $10, she would draw you as the latest citizen of Springfield. This is pretty much the most amazing thing that’s happened to me… ever.
Funny enough, as I was standing there, looking off into space as she madly put pencil to paper, all I could think about was “i really hope i don’t look like homer… i probably look like homer…”
After getting the picture and being completely stoked with it, it did occur to me that even as a Simpsons character, I do look a little… old.
