Rap Gets Simpsonized | Article | Axecess

Your favourite rappers get The Simpsons-style treatment in a special series of artworks by illustrator Bernard Rollins. The artist unwittingly created a lot of hype for himself when he posted Matt Groening-style pictures of rappers like Pharrell, Raekwon, Kanye West and Action Bronson on his Instagram page (@BNARDARTWORK) which he created in his downtime just for fun. Next thing he realised the world was going crazy for his doodles with mags posting his drawings and even one of his favourite rappers reaching out to him to collaborate on some upcoming album artwork. He recently told Buzzfeed, "Action Bronson really liked his Simpsons character! I posted it on my IG before bed one night and woke up the next day to a ton of notifications, not knowing that he had shared it". He went on to say, "He liked it enough to reach out to me via Instagram about doing more. I'm really living out my dreams right now. I'm really looking forward to working with him and he seems super excited about it, so stay tuned for that". Peep more of the artists work over at his Instagram account here
