Elizabeth (Liz) Climo is the talented illustrator behind the Simpsons, and she is also the creator of adorably hilarious cartoons featuring everyday animal interactions, which she posts to Tumblr.
Humans encounter all kinds of awkward situations in our everyday lives. Climo’s awkward everyday lives of animals series puts our furry friends in the hot seat, hashing out what life would be like if they interacted with one another how humans do.
When Climo isn’t busy working on her funny, awkward animal cartoons she works as a character artist and storyboard revisionist on set for The Simpsons. Her website reads, “My day job is pretty demanding, so it’s hard enough just finding the time to do these comics.” Somehow she finds the time to create these funny comics as well as children’s books and greeting cards.
Climo is on top of the world, working on one of America’s most popular television shows of all time. Yet, it wasn’t always caviar and ‘can I have your autograph?’ for this talented artist. Climo shares, “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.”
How you really wear a Super Dad apron…
When your friends are snakes you don’t need to waste money on a selfie stick!
The day giraffes learned to swim
Who wore it best?
The BEST April fools joke ever
Friends are there when your bag breaks
Life is a swing when you have friends like this
Who wants to eat a fish when you can keep it as a life-long pet!?
But wait… I really wanted the new iPhone
Talent is in the eye of the beholder
Threat or donuts?
What happens when you don’t like lemonade but life gives you lemons?
Leg warmers it is!
Careful who you invite to your picnics…
A good friend knows when you leave something behind
Oh, so that’s what’s going on!
Real friends tell you when your outfit just doesn’t work
I’ll be your kite when yours breaks
But I want soft skin like you!
That one friend…
When you know your friends way too well…
