Image: How to Make Love to a Woman
Bill Plympton started his career as a gag artist for Rolling Stone, Playboy, Penthouse and National Lampoon before turning his hand to animated film. Plympton's films parody sex, violence, religion and other taboos in an eminently recognisable classic coloured pencil style. Be warned - in this selection of Plympton's short films you'll see drag racing, outrageously excited body parts, the effects of nicotine addiction, nasal follicles and inter-species sex with an octopus!
