Matt Groening

By Enrico Juarez

Matt Groening is an american cartoonist, producer, animator, and voice actor. I chose him because he has made some of my favourite shows that I like to watch. I like his style of his Characters and in general the animated shows. I like the humor that he has and his comedy. Matt Groening was born on February 15, 1954 in Portland. He named some of his characters in his show “The Simpsons” after his siblings.



He was born on February 15, 1954. As kid, he was very artistic. He attended Evergreen college and was an editor for the school newspaper. He never considered it a viable career option. When he met Lynda Barry, his life had changed. She inspired him because she made a living of selling her comics.  After he graduated he moved to LA in 1973 to work as a writer. He worked part time jobs miserably. He made a comic strip called “Life in Hell”. It attracted the attention of the producer James L. Brooks. He contacted Matt and asked if he was interested in creating a series of animated shorts. He accepted and his animations were put in the Tracey Ullman show on April 19, 1987. In that show he created the simpsons and he became famous.
