Tom Gammill. Tom is also a cartoonist and writer for the Simpsons. I recognized his voice from the Simpsons DVD commentaries.
Tom also does funny films with cartoonists on You Tube called "Learn to Draw". Here is one with Jim Borgman. They showed one with Matt, but I cannot find a link to it.
The talk touched on the creation of the Simpsons, Life in Hell and Futurama. It was interesting but I would have liked more talk about the animation process with maybe some concept sketches and animatics. Unfortunately, I think that part of the creative is not really the phase that Matt is involved with. It is more in the realm of the directors and artists at the studios. Here is a blog entry I found with a good overview of the talk (from freep.com).
Afterward, there was time left open for questions, which took a strangely fannish turn. (Someone asked for a lock of Matt's hair-creepy...)
Overall it was an enjoyable evening. We also saw an exhibit on the campus of Billy Ireland's Columbus Dispatch work. Really facinating stuff-especially the politial battles and issues affecting Ohio in early 20th century.
We were not able to see the George Herriman Krazy Kat exhibit or the R. Crumb Genesis exhibit, but plan to make it up to see them at a later date.
In other animaton lecture news, Chuck went to see Disney artist Mark Henn Talk at Wombat Gallery. He promises a report ;)
