Lord of the Simpsons

Artist Mary Johan Juver has created quite the imaginative collection of mash-ups portraying everyone’s favorite cartoon family as the characters from J.R.R Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings series. This set is hilarious and the idea of seeing Homer Simpson portraying Aragorn is something I’m surprised the show hasn’t thought up, as far as I’m aware. Of all the characters shown here, however, I would have loved to see the artist’s take on Grandpa Simpson (Abe) as Gandalf. Excitingly, Juver seems to be starting work on another Simpsons’ mash-up, this time involving the characters from Harry Potter. Can’t wait to see the whole set!
