Cinefantastique's New York Comic-Con 2012: Bill Plympton

2012-10-18-BillPlympton_Tiffany_410.jpgJust because last year saw the publication of a mammoth retrospective of his work, that doesn't mean cartoonist Bill Plympton is putting away his pencils just yet. He was back at New York Comic Con this year, to promote a new, career-spanning documentary about him and a new book meant to inspire prospective artists with the maverick spirit that has fueled his projects.

I got a few minutes to speak with Bill about these new releases, and also got an inside look at a new project that will make him a regular guest on your home screen.
