Yes! OCI’s new logo was designed by Bill Plympton, a legendary animator from Oregon. We are incredibly grateful that he took the time to design this fantastic logo for the Oregon Cartoon Institute. Bill Plympton is an American animator, graphic designer, cartoonist, and filmmaker best known for his 1987 Academy Awards-nominated animated short Your Face and his series of shorts featuring a dog character starting with 2004’s Guard Dog. The third OCI event: we co-sponsored Bill Plympton Day (May 26) at the Oregon Sesquicentennial Film Festival at Marylhurst. Thank you again Bill!
Currently, Brad Bird, Matt Groening and Bill Plympton stand at the top of Hollywood animation, television animation, and art house animation, respectively. It is a clean sweep – all three are Oregonians.
