Gallery: Matt Groening's Simpsons-Inspired Art for Apple


As Gizmodo reports, back in the ’80s, before Matt Groening became a household name with The Simpsons, he created a clever, illustrated “student’s guide” for potential Mac users as part of a gig that he had with Apple.

Click through to find out what it looks like when these two cultural icons collide, but don’t be surprised if you recognize a bit of yourself in a few of his student “archetypes.”
