This is easily the most awesome art ever commissioned by a mime troupe for their promotional purposes. 

Seeking Woodring fans on film!
Written by Kim Thompson | Filed under Jim Woodring 26 Jun 2008 2:04 PM

Jonathan D. Howells is putting the finishing touches on a long-simmering documentary about Jim Woodring. In the course of doing this he discovered that he does not have signed releases from two of the people of who are prominently featured, at least for one shot, in the version he has put together. Since he really wants to keep these clips in, he's hoping the two can step forth and identify themselves, and sign the release -- or if you know them, notify them or us! (Contact Jonathan directly at johnadhowells [at] hotmail.com.)

This woman was at a signing held at Confounded Books in Seattle about six and a half years ago (a co-signing with Jim and Charles Burns):

A panoramic view of Pinhead-ville!
Written by Kim Thompson | Filed under Zippy the PinheadpreviewsOriginal Artnew releasesBill Griffith 26 Jun 2008 11:04 AM

Welcome to Dingburg - Zippy the Pinhead - Bill Griffith
(click to enlarge)

Bill Griffith turned in his spectacular cover to the upcoming WELCOME TO DINGBURG Zippy collection, which focuses heavily on Dingburg, the "city inhabited solely by pinheads." (Other than Washington D.C., of course.) The inside cover will feature a full-color fold-out map of Dingburg, and as a result the front cover is also a foldout and our man Bill knocked himself out on both. Enjoy your sneak peek at the original to the cover (we're keeping the map under wraps for now), and look for the book late this year.

Johnny Ryan + a website devoted to "Street Boners" and "TV Carnage" = video of Johnny drawin' somethin' wacky (filmed at his appearance at Brooklyn's Desert Island a couple weeks ago).
