Hi, I’m Liz. I’m a character artist/storyboard revisionist on The Simpsons. When I am not at work doing those things, I’m at home attempting to draw other things, and then I post those things here.
You are free to repost my comics under these conditions: you attribute each and every posting to ©Liz Climo and link to lizclimo.tumblr.com; you do not use the work for commercial purposes; and you do not alter, transform or build upon the work.
Wanna say hi? Okay! Go ahead and email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Before you go to the trouble of emailing me, let me see if I can answer you first with a couple of FAQs:
How do you draw these stupid comics?
(Okay, I may have added the stupid part. Nobody has actually said that to me. Yet.) I draw on an ancient Cintiq Tablet into an even more ancient version of Photoshop.
Did you go to school for this stuff?
Sort of. I studied Art at San Jose State University but was rejected when I applied to the school of Animation. Then, two weeks later, I got a job on The Simpsons. The lesson? Stay in school- unless the school doesn’t want you and you get a job offer. In that case pack your bags and don’t look back.
Will you do a drawing for me/my girlfriend/my school project?
As much as I would love to say yes to this, I just don’t have much spare time these days. My day job can be pretty demanding, so it’s hard enough just finding the time to do these comics. But I’m so flattered that you want me to! Sorry I have to be a jerk about it.
Do you do commissioned work?
Again, I would like to say yes, but I already have a long list of commissioned work that I’m tragically behind on, so I should say no so those people don’t get mad at me.
I wrote a children’s book! Will you illustrate it?
I wish I had the time! (see the answers to those questions up there)
Will you look at this thing that I drew?
I would be happy to! Sometimes it takes a little bit of time for me to write back, but I’ll do my very best.
