DescriptionBill Plympton The Simpsons Season 19 DVD Box Set Animation Drawing and (Fox, 2019). This original pair animation drawings is by noted illustrator/animator Bill Plympton. He holds the distinction of serving as guest director on more Simpsons shows than any other, having produced six opening couch gag scenes. Over his career Mr. Plympton has contributed original art for New York Times, Rolling Stone, and National Lampoon to name a few as well as animating dozens of independent cartoon shorts. Presented here are 2 animation drawings created for The Simpsons Season 19 DVD box set. The enormous image of the whole family rendered in colored pencil and literally fills the 12 field 3-peghole animation paper and it is signed by the artist in the lower right. It appears on Disc #3 as the family car flies down the throat of a dinosaur. The second drawing is of fish used in the animation on disc #4. They too are similarly rendered and signed by the artist. Bill Plympton is a favorite of Simpsons creator Matt Groening and this lot represents a rare opportunity to own artwork from one of their few collaborative efforts. Light handling and condition is Very Good.
