The Bart Simpson Blackboard

05.18.10 7 years ago 5 Comments

You wanna know why Bart Simpson looked so cool riding a skateboard? Because he was a kid. If you plan on reenacting the world’s oldest 10-year-old, make sure your costume actually fits you instead of him. London-based illustrator Matt Williams riding a skateboard in Springfield Speedos® almost killed the clip before the magic actually happened.

Now. Aside from the daisy dukes, behold the fruits of two days, twenty white markers, 288 lines and 7,697 characters. Every six months, Work Club invites an artist to use their 22m chalkboard as they please. Mr. Williams here, goes over the top with creativity, scribing every single gag Bart ever wrote in the opening sequence.

I don’t know what’s more amazing. That he pulled it off or that he still watches The Simpsons. Come Sunday, this will be obsolete. The show’s writers have the resolve of Bob Barker. Can’t stop, won’t stop.
