Animator and director, Bill Plympton (Hair High, The Tune) , has gone his own way. His absurdist work has earned him Oscar nominations and such fans as Matt Groenig and Kanye West. His new feature, Idiots and Angels, is both spiritual and silly.
Plympton discusses his drawing technique, use of dialog, love of surrealism and Monty Python, and his dislike of Hanna-Barbera’s work. He also reveals the genesis of The Cow Who Wanted to Be a Hamburger, explains his work on West's video and his decision not to work for Disney.
