DescriptionBill Plympton The Simpsons Season 19 DVD Box Set Packaging Art Group of 2 (Fox, 2019). Award-winning independent animator Bill Plympton is a favorite of Simpsons creator Matt Groening. He holds the record for most Simpsons couch gags by a guest director, having produced six in as many years. In 2019 Bill Plympton was invited to design, illustrate and animate the DVD box set for season 19 of The Simpsons. Every graphic element in this collector set features artwork by the artist, from the disk sleeves to the printed episode menu and each disc has a different animated loop that plays on the top menu. Presented in this lot are two original illustrations used on the packaging for the season 19 box set. The first is the the artwork used for the 2-page spread on the inside of the package front flap. The exhaust trailing from the car provides the white area in which Matt Groening's message to fans is printed. It's a fabulous image with all five happy family members represented. The second one-of-a-kind Plympton illustration serves as the art on back of the box set package. It features the family riding of into the sunset with the iconic "Springfield" sign off in the distance. Both pieces are rendered in colored pencil on 12 field 3-peghole paper and signed by the artist. These are rare original drawings by a legend in independent animation featuring characters created by a legend in independent comics. The pair show minor handling and condition is Fine.
