Bill Plympton and Jim Lujan attended the Annie awards. There was much REVENGEANCE talk (mainly because they were telling people about it). There was a ton of excitement for the project. People really seem to be on board with the concept. Bill was up for 3 Annies this year. Hopefully next year, Revengeance will be up for a few!
This is Bill Plympton's line art for a character named Luis Escobar. He's a fugitive that we get to meet at the beginning of Revengeance. Rod Rosse has the distinct pleasure of trying to capture this sweaty, hairy, 300 lb behemoth of a man. Trivia fact: Luis Escobar was named after a very nice Luis Escobar, who is NOT a fugitive from the law nor is he 300 lbs hairy or sweaty. The real Luis Escobar works on the Simpson's TV show and is an amazing artist. Jim Lujan decided to name this character after his friend, Luis, because of the total contrast in personality.
