I had to put one of the Planet Express scientists on the blanket. We were a house divided over whether it would be Zoidberg or Fansworth, but ultimately we chose Farsnworth since he brought the whole Planet Express crew together. At about 130 years old, Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth is everyone’s favorite doomsday-device obsessed mad genius. He earns his living running the Planet Express Delivery Service, and generally almost destroying the universe. Due to some wibbly wobbly timey wimey hi-jinx he employs his own great^30 uncle Fry.

One of the really fun things about the GAL is getting to stretch myself as a designer, artist, and knitter. So this year I gave myself the latitude to challenge myself to several character portraits on squares, and that’s been really fun (though not what you should expect next year cause we like to shake things up!). For this square I wanted to show the Planet Express Logo, since I would consider assembling and managing that crew to be Farnsworth’s greatest accomplishments. However, I think that Farnsworth’s overall look is so iconic to the show, I wanted to get his profile on there too. I love how doing the profile in negative with the logo above it in reverse colors looks.
