(29 Dec 03) One of the best shots of robot devil with a pointless gradient in the background. For no reason it is also a wallpaper.

(29 Dec 03) Not my best scan... just a simple shot from Hell Is Other Robots.

(06-08 Nov 03) This is my favourite scan, from a scene where Leela looks into a river, and the ripples distort her image to make it look like she has two eyes... only during one frame though. I made a wallpaper out of it.

Planet Express Ship

(Jan 25) The Planet Express Ship from the opening credits. I had a lot of trouble with the logo, but it doesn't show in the thumbnail.

Simpsons 'Grabpics'

Kang (or Kodos, I dunno)

(20 Oct 03) This isn't my best grabpic ever. It was made for a competition on The No Homers Club. During it's making, my computer crashed, and I gave up, only to rush it at the last minute. I was originally planning to do the whole image, including a sofa and marge, but I didn't have the time.
