Independently Animated: Bill Plympton by Plympto, Bill and Levy, D B

Independently Animated: Bill Plympton - Bill Plimpton & D B Levy

Independently Animated: Bill Plympton by Bill Plimpton & D B Levy juxtaposes the story of his life and art against the backdrop of the overall animation industry. It chronicles Plympton’s life from his childhood of Saturday morning cartoons to his most current and certainly adult-skewing animation. The only modern animator to personally hand-draw every frame in all of his work, Academy Award–nominee Bill Plympton eschewed a career in the high-paying but soul-crushing Hollywood animation industry to explore his own creativity as an independent filmmaker. Called "mischievous, mordant, analytical, and ceaselessly imaginative" by the New York Times, and hailed simply as "God" by Simpsons creator Matt Groening, Plympton is widely regarded as the hardest-working, most prolific animator in the business. His instantly recognizable and unique style catapulted him into the pop culture stratosphere and cemented his place in the pantheon of animation greats. The book contains hundreds of pieces of art from his films, as well as never-before-seen drawings, doodles, production notes, and a full filmography.
