Jim Woodring

Jim Woodring is one of my favorite comic-book artists. His work depicts incredibly beautiful worlds inhabited by bizarre creatures. I've heard that many of his comics were inspired by dreams and hallucinations (Jim was one of the speakers in the 2005 Mind States conference). The cat-like character in the picture is Frank. Japanese artist Fuyama Taruto has made a short animation based on Frank. You can find more art work in Jim's web site, or in many of his books available from Fantagraphics. I'm very happy with my copy of The Frank Book. And I bet Seeing Things is wonderful too, I'll include it in my next Amazon order.
