Apologies to those who were expecting "Tiny Toon Adventures" fan art.

After doing those Simpsons comic strips last week, I started thinking up other ideas for the characters. In analyzing the show's character interactions, I noticed that Bart has his little clique of friends (Milhouse, Richard, Lewis, occasionally Nelson, etc.), but Lisa is usually only seen with Janey. The reason? Every time Lisa makes a new friend, the character is played by a guest star, virtually guaranteeing that said character won't return in a future episode. Case in point: Allison Taylor from 1F17 "Lisa's Rival" (played by Winona Ryder) and Alex Whitney from 5F20 "Lard of the Dance" (played by Lisa Kudrow).

But the thing about comics is that they're a purely visual medium, so you don't have to worry about voice acting. The Simpsons comic book has taken advantage of this, bringing back guest star characters like Jessica Lovejoy and Cecil Terwilliger, and I figured that in the Simpsons comic universe, Lisa still hangs out with Allison and Alex on a regular basis. They seem like they'd make a good group, anyway.

I was always so p.o'd when they had an awesome charecter that became on of my faves...and then never had them on again.
I mean, I get that money is tough, but really, Janey and Sherry + Terry suck.

Very nice work here, Jesse. I can tell you firsthand that drawing the Simpsons on-model is a real trick, and one you've got down pat. What kind of pens do you use to draw your art? This is a stock question I ask all artists, but I'm always curious. Keep up the great work, man!

Thanks! I used to have trouble with the Simpsons characters too, but after studying "The Simpsons Handbook: Secret Tips from the Pros", I picked up on the Groening/Silverman style in no time.

As for what pens I use, I'm a Micron man. I've thought about experimenting with other techniques, though - what do you use?

I've used Microns since 1998 and I still swear by them. If I have any complaints with them it's that it takes a few seconds for the ink to dry and it often smears if not enough time has allowed. Also, in the last couple years I've had problems with my Microns "bleeding" into the paper. It doesn't happen all the time, but because of this, last year I started using Pitt artist pens, which are similar to Microns except they don't have the flaws of the other. Plus, Pitt's brush pens are far superior to Microns in that they never really split or fray. So these days, I tend to use a Micron .08 for my lettering, a Pitt medium for my main inking, a Pitt small for the more intricate details, a Micron .02 for the most wee little details, and a Pitt brush pen for big, fancy looking foreground artwork. I also use a LOT of Sharpie markers, both extra fine (NOT ultra, those suck) for close-up/foreground drawings and fine (which is the fat tip) for large black areas, drawing panels and occassionally for really dramatic close-ups/foreground stuff. So them's my secrets!
