Don't blame me for the title, it was Bill Plympton's idea! But then again, so was the show itself, which was a pretty good idea. Opening this week at the Society of Illustrators of New York, will be a four-man show called Icons of Animation which will feature the work of the indefatigable Bill Plympton, the dazzling Carlos Nine, the fantastical William Joyce and, um, me. I haven't seen it yet but I can't wait. On view will be over one hundred pieces of original works on paper for projects varying from the highly personal to the shamelessly commercial. Please join us (Bill and me at least; Joyce and Nine couldn't make the journey because of other commitments) for the opening reception this Friday evening.
And if that's not enough for you, this Thursday night, Bill and I will sit on a panel together discussing our experiences in the field of animation which will be moderated by my old pal, J.J. Sedelmaier.
The event is sponsored by the Academy of Motion Pictures and will take place at The Academy Theater at Lighthouse Guild.
