    Bill Plympton The Simpsons Season 19 DVD Box Set Animation Drawings Group of 3 (Fox, 2019). Each of the four discs in The Simpsons season 19 DVD box set features an animated sequence created by noted independent animator Bill Plympton. These vignettes play in a loop above the episode menu and in this lot are three original drawings from the animation on Disc #2. In it the Simpson's car snakes along an endless looping and twisting road until it becomes an actual snake. Mr. Plympton's extensive catalog of work includes animation and illustration for publications such as the New York Times, Rolling Stone, and National Lampoon as well as dozens of independent animated shorts. He is one of Matt Groening's favorite animators and has produced more couch gags for The Simpsons television series than any other guest director. Each of these production drawings is rendered in colored pencil on 12 field 3-peghole paper and signed by the artist in the lower right. Mr. Plympton's process uses drawings instead of cels, so this is the actual artwork that was filmed. It's a rare and remarkable set of drawings by one of today's most iconic independent animators. The pieces show minor handling and condition is Fine.
