I started marathoning The Simpsons again from the top because I apparently want to suffer? I just finished all of season one, here are two small Smithers doodles that I was debating posting or not. Y’all seemed to like my other art of him so why not
That first one is a redraw of a cute pic I found on google images, thanks google images
Yesterday, we pulled off something so unique and special. Matt Selman (Simpsons writer since 1997) and I co-hosted a Simpsons marathon live video feed. For eight hours and twenty six minutes we watched Simpsons episodes during the FXX marathon and talked about everything Simpsons. Throughout the thirty two guests that showed up, we hear never before told stories, songs, jokes, characters, everything. If you are a Simpsons fan, this will be an enormous treat. You get behind the scenes insight on everything. There is so much awesome in this eight hour YouTube clip which i had no idea was being saved. If you want to watch along with the TV, the Livestream started somewhere during Deep Space Homer.

The marathon lasts 12 days and starts at 9 a.m. Central Time on Thursday, Aug. 21. It ends on Monday, Sept. 1, which just so happens to be Labor Day, at 10:59 p.m. Central Time.
Who needs the Quickie Mart?
During that glorious butt-numbing, couch-indenting time you’ll see 552 episodes and one feature-length movie. The writer, Ashley Burns*, is very clear when she writes “DO NOT ATTEMPT TO WATCH EVERY EPISODE!!!” although she recognizes that people will still try.
*Wait, wait, wait … the last name of the person who wrote this is Burns? Excellent.
Now if you’ll excuse me, you people have stood in my way long enough. I’m going to clown college.
