Have A Cow!

Bill Plympton premiered his new film "The Cow Who Wanted To Be A Hamburger" right down the street at The Hill Country Barbecue.

One of my favorite aspects of Bill's films has always been the soundtracks. Maureen McElheron has been his longtime collaborator. She played a few songs.

Nicole Renaud is providing music for Bill's upcoming feature. She played two short sets on her accordion -with an almost one of a kind see through casing.

Bill is a gracious host and ran a good show. Every set was smartly introduced and ran smoothly.

He also made sure to bring his team on stage for a bow.

The film was a bit of a graphic departure, but still recognizably Plympton. The strong blacks and deep, flat colors are a nice look. After decades of great work, he still keeps experimenting.
