Your Face

Very funny and inventive Bill Plympton animation from 1988.

"For this one, he contacted an old friend with whom he had performed in a Country Western Band (he played pedal steel guitar). Maureen McElheron, whose band it had been, agreed to score "Your Face." Due to budgetary considerations, she also sang. Her voice, eerily decelerated to sound more masculine combined with a fantastically contorting visage helped garner the film a 1988 Oscar nomination for best animation."

Glad you liked it spice. Lots of other great Bill Plympton animations at You Tube including one about a nose hair and another about a guard dog.
