Bill Plympton...YAY!

Bill Plympton chilling in Studio City. My only surviving pic.

Tonight I met and interviewed independent animation legend Bill Plympton. He was super nice and very gracious. Raul Aguirre jr and I interviewed him for Raul's Man vs Art podcast. I took a ton of pics and video....but all but 3 got erased somehow. I have no idea, one minute they were there...the next POOF, gone! Oh well, I gave Bill a copy of Ghettomation Garden and he seemed genuinely thankful and interested. Bill is in town promoting Idiots and Angels, his new film. I'll be at the premiere in LA on Friday. My chance to get a pic with the guy....and save it!

Check out my AudioBoo on the night:

Whoa! I didn't realize you guys interviewed him in PERSON! What a coup -- must have been a great time. Looking forward to hearing the podcast

It was the perfect sit down. Everything went well during the interview. Bill couldnt have been more cordial.
