Frank Burly




My friend Mark introduced me to a series of books by John Swartzwelder, writer of 59 episodes of the Simpson. It's great satire, I've enjoyed them thus far. Anywho, these are some sketches I did of what I thought Detective Frank Burly, the main character of these books, might look like. It's a mixture between Jack Black, John Swartzwelder, and William Hootkins (better known for his memorable role as "Porkin's" from Star Wars, Major Eaton, from Raiders, and of course Lt. Max Eckhardt from Batman)

New posts! New posts! I dig it, home boy! I like this character. It looks like he's the hero, but a big enough idiot that you don't wanna get too close... am I reading him wrong?

Hey I know I'm about three years late here and you probably won't see this, but I was searching Frank Burly and found your page. These are almost fuckin' spot on how I pictured him. I like how you included Swartzwelder as an influence in the design, great stuff.
