Illustrators channel their inner Simpson. I found this brilliant thread on the Pulp Faction comics forum. Cartoonists from Australia and beyond draw themselves as Simpsons characters. What a wonderful idea. I love the way the illustrators' individual styles become much more subtly evident when they're subsumed to the Groening style, and also the different ways they choose to evoke their individuality - poses, expressions, outfits - while still maintaining "Groeningness" - the bulgy eyes, the block colours, the four-fingered, sausagey hands.

There are many more wonderful pics - the one I grabbed here was put together about halfway down the thread.

Edit: Crap! The link to the pic appears to be busted now. Trying clicking on the link for pics.
