For those of you who have never run across the artwork of Jim Woodring, you’re missing out on some of the most surreal (and sometimes disturbing) pen and ink work that I’ve seen. Woodring based a lot of his subject matter on hallucinations he had as a child, and decided to record them on paper.

His most recognizable character is Frank, a good guy who goes on bizarre adventures, often accompanied by Madame Pupshaw (sort of a cat) and Pushpaw (sort of a dog). None of the characters speak.

Although I’ve never met him, Jim Woodring did me a nice favor once, so I don’t mind suggesting that you visit his store for unusual gifts for the hard to get folk.

And that’s the perfect solution to a somewhat overdue Late Night Edition of
The Overnight Open Thread.

Frank’s Dream

That’s Frank. Frank never speaks, and neither do any of the other creatures who populate his tranquil yet dangerous and oddly disturbing world. In the background, Mme. Pupshaw is on the left and Pushpaw is on the right. They’re cool.



Here’s an interview with the amazing Jim Woodring from October 2010, here’s his website, and this is The Overnight Open Thread.
