  • I love it when Bill Plympton shakes up his own visual style and tries new rendering techniques – the charm in that one still alone has me incredibly excited to see more!

    Everyone who turns up should also get a free hamburger.

  • That darn cow is so appealing! Why would I wanna eat it?!


  • Saw this short the other day when Bill came to my uni for a talk. It was really entertaining and cool to see him trying a different style, even if it was a short. Still, amazing to think it was all drawn with a sharpie on paper about the size of a postcard. Just wish I could be in New York for that burger…

    They played this during the Sonoma Valley Film Festival in the shorts 2 program. We all loved it, everyone was thoroughly enamored. The music was a perfect compliment. Thank you Bill!
