Jim Woodring was born in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains in Southern California and enjoyed an exciting childhood full of poetry and paroniria among the snakes, rats and tarantulas of that enchanted realm. He eventually grew into an inquisitive bearlike man who has had three exciting careers; garbage collector, merry-go-round-operator and cartoonist. His work has been collected in several books from Fantagraphics and in various toys, fabrics, prints and urban legends.
"Woodring is a cartoonist of frightening power... His work is of a caliber where it's hard to know what to say about it, so struck dumb are you by the immensity of the rendering and storytelling skill on the page." – Jason Michelitch, Comics Alliance
"Jim Woodring is one of the great cartoonists of his generation, and probably one or two generations on each side of his own. He's one of those cartoonists that raises one's estimation of the entire art form for him being [in] it." – Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter
"Mr. Woodring's imagery mimics the look of antique wood engravings and animated cartoons of the 1930s while tapping deeply into reservoirs of mythic imagination." – The New York Times
"Cartoonist and artist Jim Woodring is one of the most important cartoonists of his generation." – NPRRecent Awards:
