Lucas Jubb: Simpsons Club Patches

Freelance illustrator and illustrative designer Lucas Jubb dedicates all his time to make the world a beautiful and more interesting place to live in. Alongside his professional output he creates personal projects more in-tune with his own hobbies and interests.

Lucas is obviously a massive fan of 'The Simpsons' (Who isn't, right!?) and as a result he has designed and released some unusual fan-art pieces based on classic episodes.

Inspired by clubs and organisations from the episodes 'Kamp Krusty' and 'Bart The General', Lucas has released two, very limited, embroidered sew-on-patches, ideal for embellishing any Simpson fans denim jacket or rucksack!

The 'Kamp Krusty' patch, inspired by the run down summer camp from the episode of the same name, was also influenced in its design by classic American Scouts patches and the three triangles are a nod towards the face paint Bart adopts during his time at the camp.

“Dear Mom, I no longer fear Hell, for I have been to Kamp Krusty. Our nature hikes have become grim death marches. Our arts and crafts hut is, in truth, a Dickensian workhouse. Bart makes it through the day clinging to his hope that Krusty the Klown will come. But I am far more pessimistic. I am not even sure if this letter will reach you, as the normal lines of communication have been cut. So I close by saying, SAVE US! SAVE US NOW! Bart and Lisa.”

The 'Bart Simpson Tree House Club' patch was inspired by the classic season one episode 'Bart The General', in which Bart, Grampa Simpson, and Herman Hermann rally the town’s children into fighting back against Nelson Muntz and his bullying cronies. The three logs illustrated in the design obviously refer to Bart's three house HQ, whilst also hinting at military service stripes.

“Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. Contrary to what you’ve just seen, war is neither glamorous nor fun. There are no winners, only losers. There are no good wars, with the following exceptions: The American Revolution, World War II, and the Star Wars Trilogy. If you’d like to learn more about war, there’s lots of books in your local library, many of them with cool, gory pictures”

These first two patches are due for release via the A Little Summit online store on August 1st, limited to just 15 units each and priced at a very reasonable £7.00 a piece! These are sure to sell out unbelievably quickly.

There is also an illustration for a 'Springfield Wacking Day' patch in Lucas' Instagram feed, alluding to the possibility of more Simpsons patches to come! Which other Simpsons clubs and organisation would you like to see... Perhaps the 'Stonercutters' or the 'Krusty Klub'!?
