SLIDE Screenings - April & May, plus SPRING ART SALE

Hi fans, 

In my last blog post I told you about the screenings of my new feature animated film, "SLIDE" that took place in January and February.  Well, I'm trying to catch up and even get ahead of the game, for one reason, so you will know when and where the screenings are BEFORE they happen!  I figure that this way, if there's one near you, or even far away, you can make plans to go see the film!  If I just let you know after, what good is that, the film already happened!  So now you can expect to see the film at these festivals and you can make some plans - please visit the web-sites for each festival if you want to see their exact programming schedule and find out how to get tickets.  You can just Google it, right?

I'm going to be appearing LIVE in person at the Florida Film Festival, the ANIMOCJE Festival in Poland, the Santa Fe Film Festival, the AniMayo Festival and the Meknes Animation Festival.  Well, I can't be everywhere, but I'm sure going to try!  It can get very tricky, like I said "YES" to too many festivals and accidentally scheduled myself to be in two places at once, which I still can't find a way to do!  My trusted office manager had to step in and get the festival's travel coordinators talking to each other, so we could find a way for me to be at both festivals!

Please come see me at one of those events and buy some merch, I'll do a signed sketch for you!  

In other news, we are going to have another BIG Spring Art sale!  And for the FIRST TIME ever, we'll be selling artwork from "SLIDE"!  I've been working on the film for about 7 years and it's truly been a labor of love.  Now I've finished it, and it looks GORGEOUS!

If you've seen any of my beautiful, early illustrations, you'll see that I've now created an entire feature film in a similar ball-point pen style, then using Prismacolor pencils to make a magnificent, never-before-seen style.  Nobody else would be stupid or crazy enough to make a whole feature film with these tools!  

So I'm offering these primo pieces from "Slide", an animated comedy musical Western, for the first time.  The film has already won four festival awards, and we're looking to release the film theatrically by winter-time.  It's about a slide guitar playing cowboy who cleans up a corrupt and deadly lumber camp town.  You can see the trailer here:

In addition, we'll be selling the art from my previous films during this sale, at the same price structure as before: 

Art from "Your Face" and "The Simpsons" couch gags, $300 per piece plus postage

Art from "25 Ways to Quit Smoking" and "How to Kiss", $200 per piece plus postage

Art from my other older features, shorts and music videos for $100 per piece, plus postage.

The way it all works is, you just e-mail us at and let us know what Bill Plympton film or films you want to buy art from.  If you have a specific image in mind, my staff will track it down IF we still have it.  Or we can send you scans of 5 or 10 drawings from a film and you can choose the one you like.  Postage is then usually $10 if you live in the U.S. or $30 if you live in a different country - BUT if you want to buy several drawings or cels, we can ship them together and you only have to pay the postage once!  

We're really close to running of art from some of my older films, so if you want to buy signed original art from "Your Face" or "How to Kiss" you need to e-mail us very soon!  Don't delay! 

I still have bills from the post-production on "Slide" so I'm willing to open up the archives and dust off the old bins of art from "The Tune" and "I Married a Strange Person" and "Mutant Aliens", just let us know which films you're most interested in and we'll get your animation art collection going!

You can see some of the available art from "Slide" posted below - but there's a lot more!  Just give us an e-mail and let us know what art you're interested in!
