Zombie Walk of Fame: The Simpsons

The Siiiiiiimp-soooooons....

Of course, this would be one of my favorite stops along the Zombie Walk of Fame as I work toward finishing up all 101 zombifications of stars I chose from the Hollywood Walk of Fame for my new series.  Matt Groening's yellow-skinned, three fingered universe centers around this family unit of Bart, Lisa, Maggie, Marge and Homer who have each become American icons.  I was among the first generation to grow up with television's longest running family and yearned for Thursday nights as a child and in my teens, gaining clever quips about culture, which I would regurgitate with my friends for weeks afterward.  The Simpsons ARE pop surrealism chewing up sacred cows and spitting them back in the mouths of the entire world.

With under 25 portraits finished to color, I'm on the home stretch as they stack up!  Also pictured is my Donald Trump Zombie (click HERE for more on him!)
 
Back in the Fall of 2010, when I was getting started blogging, I did my first Countdown to Halloween featuring the Zombie Walk of Fame.  Each night I would preview the sketches and/or line work for these portraits I'm finishing the colors for some 18 months later.  Click HERE for The Simpsons preview to see the initial sketch and inks of them!


Creator of The Simpsons, Matt Groening also received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this year!  Maybe I'll give the cosmic architect of Springfield a taste for the flesh if the current series proves successful enough for a second edition!
