Eddie Martinez’s strong show of “painted drawings” is on view at The Journal Gallery in Brooklyn through April 28th
Here is the full short film “based on the true story of Shepard Fairey’s first act of street art during his time at Rhode Island School of Design from 1989-1992.”
Every morning Bill Plympton wakes up at six, goes to his drawing board, gets a piece of bond and a No. 2 pencil and sits down to the business of animating the indelible, noirish figures that have garnered cult status as Plymptoons. What began in high school with drawings of bugs and plants for the Portland Yellow Pages has grown into an empire that encompasses political cartoons, animated shorts, features, advertisements, music videos (his first for Madonna; his latest for Kanye), and a forthcoming Rizzoli book (Independently Animated: Bill Plympton) with a Terry Gilliam forward. Along the way he’s filled his shelves full of awards, not to mention earned two Oscar nods. On the eve of the release of his latest feature, Idiots & Angels, we caught up with the industrious illustrator at his Chelsea studio to talk about the new feature, working with Kanye (vs. Weird Al), and what’s really going down on the animator groupie circuit.

Great piece with a lulz line here:
“Despite large tortoiseshell aviators, there’s no question that Wiley’s eyes are on the boys—but not creepily. Professionally. Purposefully.”
and some wisdom here:
“A painting might seem like a quaint kind of immortality in 2013, when more people see, in an afternoon, some trending meme than will see, in a lifetime, a great painting.”
