We were fortunate to catch a glimpse into the world of renowned animator Bill Plympton.

Bill Plympton started out as an illustrator and cartoonist whose work has appeared in such magazines as The Village Voice, Vogue, and Rolling Stone.

His first animated film was a film of Jules Feiffer's song, Boomtown.  By 1987, he had garnered an Oscar nomination for his short film Your Face.

His feature length work has included such films as I Married A Strange Person and Hair High.

He has also tried his hand at live-action feature films, including Guns On The Clackamas and J. Lyle.

Over the years, he has made dozens of award winning short films including the more recent Dog series of films.

His most recent project is an animated feature film titled Idiots and Angels, a dark comedy about a man’s battle for his soul.
