Jim Woodring is blowing my mind lately

He’s debuted stunning, moving original graphic novels two years in a row (Weathercraft, one of the year’s best books, in 2010, and The Congress of the Animals this year), while his compendium The Frank Book has recently returned to print. But Jim Woodring is not one to rest on his laurels where his funny-animal protagonist Frank is concerned. Lately he’s been posting breathtaking images like the one you see above to his blog on a surprisingly regular basis. They appear to show Frank up to his old mischievous tricks, and to augur another Frank book on the horizon. Check them out here and here, and marvel that a cartoonist of Woodring’s caliber is tossing these things out there for free like it ain’t no thing.

Thanks for the heads-up. Anyone else notice a resemblance between Woodring’s work and the classic illustrations of Wanda G’ag? Or is that just me?

Woodring is always blowing my mind.

@Scratchie: I can definitely see some similarities.

Saw Jim Woodring at multiple conversation panels at GRAPHIC in Sydney this year, the guy’s a veritable gentleman and a guru.
