Unveiling Uncle Plaster

Uncle Plaster.

We’ve started a new company called Uncle Plaster, specializing in Larry’s particular brand of 2D animation. Our latest is a segment of the web series My American Waistline, from Smash the Hive Productions.  The series comments on America’s obsession with weight and body image. The latest, called “Slings and Arrows #1”, takes a look at body shaming over coffee.
