Woodring-Wide Web
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Jim Woodring 7 Aug 2008 10:26 PM

I stumbled across both these links today, and was going to include them in tomorrow's "Blogosphere roundup," but decided they deserve their own post: Woodring Simulacra is a blog compiling images of real-world "things that look like Jim Woodring made them up," and Jimland Novelties is a Flickr user who is posting images of an incredible collection of Woodring rarities and ephemera, with Jim's permission.

Frank cartoon by Jim Woodring

From Jim Woodring comes word that our pals at Strangeco have created an online gallery of Jim's panel-cartoon-of-sorts that used to run in The Stranger a few years back. Oh yes.

Seeking Woodring fans on film!
Written by Kim Thompson | Filed under Jim Woodring 26 Jun 2008 3:04 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):

Your must-read of the dayJim Woodring calls it the single best piece of writing about Frank that he's ever read. What more need you know? 

Oh, and check out this prototype for Jim's next Presspop vinyl masterpiece, Kaiju:

Our esteemed friends at Payseur & Schmidt are taking pre-orders on a fantastic-looking and sounding new book project by Paul DiFillipo and Jim Woodring. You can even read an excerpt at their site.

Here's a detail of a detail that Jim Woodring posted on his blog of his contribution to Jacob Covey's forthcoming second Beasts! book. Whoa:

Comics Forum, R. Crumb's Underground, Frye Museum, 03/27/08

More Flog! Photo Friday, this time with audio! Last night at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, moderator Gary Groth was joined by Peter Bagge, Ellen Forney, and Jim Woodring for a lively discussion about Robert Crumb and a range of related topics. More photos can be seen on Flickr, in regular and slideshow styles.

Plus! Download the complete audio of this event (24.5 MB MP3). It's a bit low-fi, but mostly intelligible. (We are still working on bringing you a full-fledged podcast... stay tuned for that.) We've also archived this feature on our website at this page.

Woodring interview

Jim Woodring was interviewed this week on Portland's KBOO.FM radio, joined by his pal Bob Rini. Meanwhile, Jim has some great new posts over at his own blog, including news of a new Presspop book and an amazing little video of one of Jim's Moleskin "pop-ups" that I wish I could figure out how to embed here.

This Sat. in Seattle: Kim Deitch & Friends of the Nib
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Kim DeitchJim WoodringFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 5 Mar 2008 8:38 AM

  

You're all invited to join a stellar group of accomplished cartoonists in the "Friends of the Nib Comics Jam" at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery this Saturday, March 8 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. Celebrated cartoonist and visual artist Jim Woodring will preside over the activities, which will include a guest appearance by New York underground comix legend Kim Deitch. Aspiring cartoonists of all ages are encouraged to participate in this lively session, which will include a rare screening of Deitch's 1960 short film "Dial M for Monster."

Friends of the Nib is an informal cartoonists' solon formed by Woodring that meets weekly at Café Racer in Seattle's Ravenna neighborhood. Acclaimed artists such as Ellen Forney, David Lasky and animator Bruce Bickford regularly attend to mentor emerging cartoonists and network with their peers. Kim Deitch is among America's most prominent and influential alternative cartoonists. The astonishingly sophisticated animated and live-action film short "Dial M for Monster" he created as a teenager with his friend Tony Eastman has become legendary among Deitch fans; it was never released, and has only been shown a handful of times in small venues. Prior to the 7:30 screening, he will introduce the film with a brief media presentation.

Admission is free to the public of all ages. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale St. in Seattle's Georgetown industrial arts district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110. The "Comics Jam" coincides with the monthly "Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack." Over 30 galleries, studios, nightclubs, boutiques, and cafes participate in this colorful showcase of Georgetown's creative diversity.  See you then.
