Bill Plympton’s Through The Wire – Kanye West

The Kanye West artistry continues with another eye-popping collaboration, this time with one of my favs – Academy Award nominee animator, cartoonist and illustrator Bill Plympton – on a graphic memoir titled Through The Wire. Bill Plympton illustrates 12 songs – word and lyrics – by Kanye West to “tell [West] story, from his decision to drop out of college to pursue his dreams in music, through his days spent folding chinos at the Gap while struggling at night to make a name as a producer, through the pivotal car accident that eventually set him on the course to stardom and the epiphany of realizing exactly who he had become.”

The 80-pages Through The Wire hits book stores and online on Tuesday, November 10. Kanye West is repped by Charles King, Cara Lewis, Sara Newkirk and David Wirtschafter @ WME Entertainment and manager Gee Roberson @ Hip Hop.

Bill Plympton’s Hot Dog screened at Sundance Film Festival in January 2009 as part of the U.S. Animated Shorts. The plucky Hot Dog hero joins his local fire department to save the earth from global fires and garners warranted affection. Ironically, the accolades and affections don’t turn out the way Hot Dog had planned.


According to Amazon – “Plympton illustrates each of the songs in detail, his vision of Kanye’s world. The songs are annotated with explanations of the references in the songs, biographical components that illuminate the lyrics, and their meaning on a deeply personal level.

The result is a one-of-a-kind book that initially grabs you and stays with you forever.”
