MEETING THE ARTIST/ANIMATOR BILL PLYMPTON
I am finally unpacked and starting to get back to reality after a thrilling time at the 40th Telluride Film Festival. I was in the same room with a lot of world famous celebrities and got to attend 11 films - some world premieres.
Visual artists and film makers generally go hand in hand and this year I got to meet and visit with the academy award nominated animator/artist, Bill Plympton. Bill sees the world in an odd way and his animated shorts are always a bit bizarre. He shared with me that he is currently working on a short with Salma Hayek Jimenez. While we visited he drew me his famous cartoon, guide dog. The drawing is now proudly hanging on the wall of my studio.
