WOW. AMAZING work dude!
You sir are a genius!
amazing work as always 5$$$
liking the smoke rising from the gothic nuclear reactor to make homer. awesome work!
I'm so tired of pop culture crap. Yes, this is amazingly drawn but so what? Where's the concept? The Simpson's as monsters. Hooray.
Besides, I already saw this in the last Halloween special.

I'm so tired of pop culture crap.
Yeah! Do a design about James Joyce already!
what's good about this besides the execution?
Umm... The concept.
agree with the others about wanting to see more original concepts from you but still can't score this anything but $5 ;)
Umm... What concept.
And no offense at all to buko - he's, by far, one of the best designers on this site. Just getting tired of the same old "let's make pop culture icons look like something else" trick. He's capable of so much more.
But I'll hold my tongue in the future so I don't offend the sensitive tless community. Sorry!
could be pushed a little farther, maybe the two interacting somehow but the execution is superb as always. $4
The concept was done as for treehouse of horror so not sure it is totally original treehouse of horror
so lazy AND a concept rip
love it 5

you are so damn good man $5

How is it lazy?
just because something seems techinically well done doesnt mean its not lazy
This is amazing and you're one of the best. 5$
I feel all this criticism is unjustified. sometimes people need to take a step back from the opinionation (I know thats not really a word) and just appreciate something for what it is. This design is incredibly well done, we all know it and I feel like no one can really successfully refute that. Seriously great work man keep it up.
sorry for the double comment (really wish you could delete those)
the pop culture hate seems a bit weird to me, I know some people just want to see ART but to each their own, it sells well and I think it's brilliant! buko has shown more then enough time he can do more then well enough without the pop culture reference, I think this design is amazing, and well executed, no need for people to trash it, it almost seems like jealousy. Look at the design for what it is, I understand when pop culture is done bad, but this is well thought out and executed perfectly!
I feel bad for buko for having so many problems with some comments lately. But I think too that they wouldn't criticize him if he weren't a threadless top5. Alex has expresed it perfectly, it seems jealousy.
Again, congrats for another brilliant design buko. No matter what a minority says.
i clearly agree with alexmdc! We are not making ART, we are making designs for tee shirt, and it's all about that, do you want to wear it...? do you think it's wearable?
Of course, the concept has to be strong, the design has to be a minimum well drawn, and using Pop CUlture has to have a sense...i think that here, Buko makes all that: Amazingly done, conceptually good (not of course a stunning concept, but strong enough IMO), and prettywearable! what else?
Im pressuming you were too busy being patronizing to click the image link up there then
I mean it's still art :) but yeah people tend to forget what the medium they're designing for is tshirts and not a painting, I love seeing all type of work, but I think buko is dead on with the audience and whats he's working for, and thus makes it more marketable and not surprisingly climbing to the top non stop of most printed around here :)
THIS IS AWESOME, BEST SO FAR!
you are the man
whether it is art, a tee shirt or whatever, it still represents the designer the person wearing it and the threadless community and as part of that I am always going to have a problem with trying to make money off other peoples work regardless of that persons talent. If picasso walked in here and painted me luke skywalker I would ask why the hell is he doing it because he is far more talented than that (also dead), yet the irony being it would still sell for thousands and thousands. So sure churn out vaguely different parodies if you so wish but I doubt it will feel as good as creating something that is truly yours.
Awesome work! 5$!
alexmdc: eheh, sometimes, it's Art, i'm ok with that, but firstly, we are not supposed to make art on Threadless, that's a "plus", that's an extra indeed...but Mainly, i'd say we try to make "Cool T shirt to wear", don't we?
and this one by Buko is cooooool!
(By the way, just received Monkey Business in Hoody, that's a killer alex, YOU are a killer)
Okay so definitely great used of software and techniques, but what’s the concept? Why is it that “Homer” is coming out as smoke from some kind of an antique nuclear power plant? And “Marge” is excelling out of the water? And why are they both portrayed as a Frankenstein creature? Design is about making things work not about making things pretty. But again great work just put a meaning into it. 2.1!
It's incredibly illustrated but it's been done before (refer to the link above), similar to the star wars one he did. Just want to see Buko go back to his ROOTS when his stuff was fresh and original. That's all.
That said, he's still one of my fave artists on this site. Calm down, people. Just being honest. I know the truth is hard to swallow but quit taking things so personally. Buko is great. And he will continue to be.
copycow. I disagree completely with you
I think the title explains the concept and the execution is top notch - as usual. I agree with alexmdc and jebs and I do think Buko should do whatever he wants cuz everything he does is nothing but amazing.
"antique nuclear power plant" =Homer worked at a power plant and the Franken monster was created in a dungeon...smash them together.
LOVE THIS 5$$$
wow looks great 5$
