Meet The Panelist: Bill Plympton

This two & a half minute reel begins with Bill’s Oscar nominated work in 1987 and continues up to 2015. A great crash course!

Bill will be making two UNDERGROUND USA appearances: the symposium on Oct. 15 at White Stag Auditorium and a screening, where he will introduce his short films, on Oct. 16 at Mission Theater.

I wrote about Bill’s generous gift of his time and expertise during the 2009 Oregon Sesquicentennial Film Festival. Learned so much from him! Thank you, Bill.


UNDERGROUND USA is a public history/art education event made possible in part by a grant from the Kinsman Foundation and by a grant from the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation. It is presented by Oregon Cartoon Institute in partnership with UO Comics & Cartooning Studies and PSU Comic Studies, with support from Oregon Historical Society and McMenamins.

Comic City USA, the first exhibit to look at Oregon print cartooning history, is at Oregon Historical Society, 1200 SW Park Avenue, through Jan. 31, 2017.

“People who read them when they first came out remember the initial impact — like getting whacked in the head with a two by four.” Patrick Rosenkranz, on underground comics
