Dean Rankine – simpsonizing Karla

Dean Rankine is a comics artist who contributes to the Simpsons comic books.  Dean was recently at the re-opening of the local Lego shop in Pakenham, where he was simpsonizing members of the public.

My wife and daughter were excited to have themselves drawn as Simpsons characters by Dean.  These drawings are great!  Dean was able to capture the features of his subjects, while still including a Simpsons cheesy grin.  He was offering standing portraits like these, or head in the jar, Futurama style, drawings.

Next time, I’ll have to get myself simpsonized.  It would be interesting to see how my ugly mug looks with that Simpsons smile!

Below is a quick video I took and edited on my phone of Dean working on Karla’s drawing.
