So we got to see a bunch of awesome animation including Bill Plympton's latest short called "Guide Dog." Its a follow up to last years oscar nominated "Gaurd Dog." It was hillarious as usual but I was extremely impressed with Joanna Quinn's short called "Dreams and Desires."
She has a similar style to Bill, in that its really shaky looking but the animation is great. It also looks like she used charcoal, and the camera angles and acting are outstanding.

Here's a little clip from Joanna's movie:
So after the show, I got to meet Bill and get a picture and a couple of autographs from him. He drew a little picture for you if you bought a DVD or something from him.
