Hi everybody, and welcome to anew NIL-Tech drawing tutorial: "Bart Simpson". Since his debut in the eighties, he gained fans all over the world. Homer may be the lead character now, however, what stood out the most from the famous yellow family was the defiant yet lovable Bart Simpson. At first, Bart was conceived as the show's primary character and not his bumbling father. Yet Bart swiftly turned into one of the most favored characters as well as a staple in pop-culture.


Here are some interesting facts about Bart Simpson:

1. Matt Groening based Bart Simpson's character on comic book character Dennis the Menace.

2. Nancy Cartwright is the one who voices Bart - yes, a woman.

3. A T-shirt with the writing "I'm Bart Simpson. Who the hell are you?" was banned in several public schools.

4. Bart has likewise shown up in commercials for Burger King, Domino's Pizza, Kentucky Fried Chicken as well as Subway.

5. Michael Jackson that was a fan of The Simpsons, wrote the track "Do the Bartman".
