The Simpson Iyers

Sasank Gopinathan, who is working as a Product and Automotive Designer, was approached for a custom saree design.  He was asked to modify the Simpson Family to look like they are South Indian Brahmin family.  I liked his work so much and asked his permission to reproduce that in my blog. Sasank kindly agreed.

Sasank has done so many projects which are worth viewing.  You can follow Sasank on his Behance profile.


The Simpson Iyers!
 

Bart Iyer is wearing a kurta and pajama with sandals. His Iyer vibudhi (holy ash) mark is visible on his forehead
 

Homer Iyer is wearing a Veshti in tamil brahmin paalathaal style. His sacred thread is also visible, and so are his Iyer vibudi markings on his forehead and arm


Homer Iyer dozed off after eating his favourite vadai with chutney

Lisa Iyer is wearing a typically south indian paavadai and dhaavani. She also adorns jimiki earrings




Maggie Iyer sports an adorable paavada blouse, a little loose for her maybe. She also has a mole drawn on her cheek, something that parents tend to for little kids in India.


Marge Iyer is seen wearing a saree worn in traditional tamil brahmin 'madisar' style.


Marge Iyer wearing another saree, this time a kancheepuram silk saree worn in the more common style.

  28. I enjoyed it! At school when I had History homeworks, for example comic books, I drew famous characters with different outfits. Once I made the Flintstones and Independence of Brazil, they wore clothing settlers from Portugal and Indians.It's funny!
