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 inkwork 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.

As a special added bonus for all Blogmockers, here’s a short video of Frank, Madame Pupshaw and Pushpaw in action:

Woodring’s online store is awesome. It’s full of delightful oddness, perfect gifts for the hard-to-get, and presented for your review on The Overnight Open Thread.
