Aside from being a popular comedian and YouTuber, Mikey Bustos also runs another successful YouTube channel called AntsCanada which he started in 2009. On this channel, Mikey uploads videos about ant-keeping and also has an online shop that specializes in ant-keeping with the same name.

It’s this special interest that led Mikey to receive a special gift from popular American cartoonist Matt Groening who is best known for creating one of the longest-running cartoons on television The Simpsons Last February 16, Mikey shared that Matt gave him a personalized drawing after their virtual encounter last year.

On his post, Mikey wrote, “Pardon me while I fanboy to the highest level! ‘THE’ Matt Groening, American cartoonist & creator of @TheSimpsons, just sent me this personalized drawing of Homer covered in fire ants. I'm screaming!  For me, the legendary Matt Groening is a modern day Picasso!

Last year, the Groenings reached out to me to request a chat with their son about ants as he was an avid fan of our AntsCanada channel. I was completely blown away by their son's ant knowledge, passion for ant keeping, and pet ant colonies housed in our @antscanada ant farms. We now schedule spirited ant chats on Zoom every now and then and it inspires me as a video creator.

I literally grew up watching The Simpsons, so meeting the Groenings via Matt's son watching @antscanada is a full circle moment for me! I will treasure this artwork forever!  PS - Matt Groening's handwriting (3rd photo) is the actual font for the show! So cool right?! “
