Noah Scott CFHS 2016 graduate makes news with his art and recent collaboration with "The Simpsons"

Artist Noah Scott poses with his drawing, of Krusty the Clown, Wednesday, October 26 in Cuyahoga Falls, that was recently featured at the end of an episode of "The Simpsons."

CFHS grad created a piece of fan art that is featured during the credits of this year's Halloween episode of "The Simpsons"

Most horror stories do not end well. But this Halloween tale has a happy ending for a Cuyahoga Falls artist. Noah Scott has been doodling and creating artwork his entire life. Legend has it his first real creation was a drawing of a fish at the tender age of just 3 years old. His art has evolved a lot since then and has taken a bit of a darker turn.

One of Scott's latest creations, a sinister looking Krusty the Clown looming over Bart and other characters from "The Simpsons" fame, has gained national attention. On a lark, Scott answered the call earlier this month for fandom art inspired by the show and the Krusty the Clown character to be considered to be a part the animated show's Halloween Treehouse of Horror special He hastily put pen to paper and sent off his submission on the eve of the deadline on Oct. 10, 2022. Three days later, Scott said, he got the call from the show's creators and the Fox network that his artwork would be among 20 featured in the special episode's closing credits.

The Halloween-inspired episode, which aired Sunday, October 23, 2022 is dubbed "Not It" and pays homage to Stephen King and features Krusty the Clown. Scott's artwork was the 13th piece included in the credits.

The episode is now available on Hulu. Click here to read an Akron Beacon Journal article about Scott
