July 30, 2014 – Seattle, WA. Jim Woodring is often described as among the most important cartoonists of his generation. This assessment is confirmed in the pages of JIM, the latest anthology of Woodring’s work. Meet this amazing artist at Fantagraphics Bookstore on Saturday, August 9 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.
The eclectic content of JIM ranges from confessional autobiographical stories to the idiosyncratic allegorical comix that have come to define this prolific artist. This collection, available for the first time at Fantagraphics Bookstore, spans 30 years of spellbinding creativity.
Join us on Saturday, August 9 to commemorate the publication of this monumental work. The book signing coincides with the colorful Georgetown Art Attack featuring challenging visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic arts community.
Don’t miss the reception on Wednesday, August 6 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM for emerging Canadian cartoonist Georgia Webber with her compelling comix serial Dumb. This event will also serve to celebrate the City Arts Award bestowed upon Seattle cartoonist Max Clotfelter for his piece in last April’s Intruder art exhibition at Fantagraphics Bookstore.
