jim woodring

This is a drawing by Jim Woodring. He was one of the first comic book artists to get me back into comics as an adult. His work deals with dream like images and stories and subverts the traditional comic book narrative by seeming relatively simple (or even cute!) on the surface. Woodring seems to have a very personal language in his imagery and makes totally believable worlds and characters that you can actually identify with. His work has a classic comic book look in that it looks as though he works freehand and has such fluidity.
