An interesting article about how they found Banksy  and life imitating art.

How did “The Simpsons” manage to track down Banksy, the pseudonymous British artist, and get him to create the powerful opening-credit sequence from Sunday’s episode, which seems to reveal the torturous sweatshop responsible for the show’s creation? And how, after all that mockery, have the producers behind that Fox animated series been able to retain their jobs?

Q.

One of the things Banksy is known for is disguising his identity. How can you be sure that you were dealing with the real him?

A.

The original boards that we got from him were in his style and were certainly by an extremely proficient artist. We were dealing with the person that represented him making the movie. I haven’t met him, I don’t even know what he looks like, except what the Internet suggests.

this was good

A lot of the show’s animation is produced in South Korea, but not under those conditions.

A.

No, absolutely not.

Q.

And even that closing shot of the 20th Century Fox logo surrounded in barbed wire?

A.

Approved by them.
