Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery presents Jim Woodring: Fran

September 27, 2013 Seattle, WA . Join visionary artist and cartoonist Jim Woodring at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery on October 12 for an exhibition and book signing commemorating publication of his latest graphic novel Fran. The event features works created with his giant quill pen and musical entertainment by Stephen Steinbrink.

Seattle-based iconoclast Jim Woodring has enchanted readers for years with the improbable adventures of Frank and a supernatural cast of supporting characters. Metaphysical romance enters the picture in Fran, when the title character seduces Frank. Woodring describes this latest wordless volume as both a sequel and prequel to his sensational graphic novels Weathercraft and Congress of the Animals completing a surrealistic circle. The idiosyncratic artist will display imaginative artworks created with his giant quill pen, as well as the 7 foot-long-pen itself.

On Saturday, October 26 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, Fantagraphics Bookstore and Elysian Brewing host a preview of the latest Woodring-inspired Oddland beer series. Woodring will demonstrate his prowess with his giant pen while costumed revelers sample his latest concoction.
