In the coming weeks, we will be releasing Bill Plympton’s Make Toons That Sell Without Selling Out. I’ve posted a picture of advanced copy that I have here and it looks amazing. It also looks like that photo a kidnapper sends the hostage’s family… but you can ignore that.
Bill began his career creating cartoons for publications such as The New York Times, National Lampoon, and Playboy. He has received Oscar nominations for his animated short films “Your Face” and “Guard Dog”. He’s made nine feature films and most recently he animated the opening couch gag for The Simpsons which I’ve posted below. His upcoming book teaches you how to start a successful career outside the world of corporate animation–without compromise. You’ll learn fundamental and advanced drawing techniques, the secrets to telling a good story, and the business side of short and feature-length films. And you’ll get to see some of Bill’s art from as early as age 13 all the way to his present sketching and drawing.
