I’m sure the Simpsons enthusiast knows all of this already, but I had no idea Matt Groening based the Simpsons off his own family. In The Story, a young Matt Groening is recorded by his father Homer as he tells his little sister Maggie a bedtime story about the various animals he and his sister Lisa met while out on a walk. Adorable.
A lot of inspiration for creativity and originality can be found in everyday life. It’s a matter of making use of it. Matt Groening did, and look where it got him.
