Congratulations Bill Plympton and Sandrine Flament

Indie animation’s most eligible bachelor, Bill Plympton, is tying the knot!

News has reached us that animator Bill Plympton will be getting married to artist Sandrine Flament on Friday.

For those who don’t know, Plympton is essentially New York City’s “king of independent animation”; Flament is a Paris-based illustrator who has worked as an assistant on several of Plympton’s films. My personal best-wishes to both of them. Bill can be congratulated in the Comments below.

    Way to go, Bill! Thanks for giving me my start on the US animation circuit, btw!

    Somehow this saying reminds me of one of your (future?) films:

    My heart to you is given:
    Oh, do give yours to me;
    We’ll lock them up together,
    And throw away the key.

    Hey, I like this one too!

    “We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness – and call it love – true love.”
