Longtime Simpsons animator David Silverman has been sketching Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and company since 1987, before the show was even on the air. Over the years he’s been just about as integral to the show’s iconic run as anyone, directing The Simpsons Movie and several specials in addition to penning the likenesses of some of TV’s most recognizable animated characters.
Over the past few days Silverman has been tweeting some of his earliest sketches of the show’s characters, dating all the way back to 1988. Take a look at some of what he’s posted, along with his comments, and be sure to follow Silverman on Twitter to go back and see them all. His Twitter handle is also @tubatron, which might be reason enough to follow him by itself. (via BuzzFeed)
