This is Homer. I created this timeless work of art. It is my portrayal of legendary TV icon Homer Simpson. What do you think? Homer took three weeks to plan and 2 hours to make.

Part of a shelf I purchased came with little metal squares which acted as compartment separators. I removed all those and knew I had to do something cool with them.
A week later I was at Michael’s, an art supply/craft store, and purchased a wooden foundation. I took 1/8″ nails and lay them across the wood like shingles on a roof. Now.. what to paint? For three weeks I contemplated painting a train, a Model T Ford, something “industrial”. Then one day it hit me, and 2 hours later–Homer.
