MoCCA Fest 2018: "Your Face" and "Homer's Face" Animation Drawings by Bill Plympton

Animator Bill Plympton makes his films the old-fashioned way, drawing each and every image on paper himself without the assistance of in-betweeners. "Your Face" is his iconic 1987 film that was Oscar-nominated for best animated short. This year saw the television premiere of a short parody version of the film, "Homer's Face" for the opening couch gag on "The Simpsons." Mr. Plympton showed up at MoCCA Fest in April with a stack of assorted animation drawings, highlighted by a pair of closely-matched drawings from the two films. How often does an artist take the trouble to curate drawings for collectors?

Note:  David Apatoff wrote an excellent piece about Bill Plympton at Comic-Con on his Illustration Art blog back in 2014. Don't miss it.

This week's blog posts are devoted to the signed books and original art I acquired at MoCCA Fest 2018. This is Bill Plympton's first appearance on Attempted Bloggery. The artist's website is here.
