There was a recent article submitted to Digg.com about a relatively unknown artist’s interpretation of The Simpsons and Futurama characters drawn in an anime style. The works of art were met with thunderous adoration from fans and artists alike, and it seems Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons and Futurama, enjoyed viewing the art as well.
The artist, Nina Sachie Matsumoto, became an online celebrity within a few days and has now been hired by Matt Groening’s comic book company, Bongo Comics.
This is truly an inspiring story of an artist whose impressive talent was finally recognized by those who inspired her in the first place. And I would like to wish the artist good luck, wherever this serendipitous turn of events leads!
