Seeing Things SC

SEEING THINGS SC - Partial Color Creators: By Jim Woodring Description: Jim Woodring’s charcoal drawings take the otherworldly qualities of his comics (The Frank Book) to a higher level of clarity and nuance. These crisply rendered images reflect his life-long obsession with hidden worlds, alternate realities, and the inexplicable resonance of the unprecedented and irrational in lucid art. Seeing Things collects the most toothsome of these drawings and arranges them in four sections. Lazy Robinson is a series of portraits of forms taken by a cognizant object during the course of a specific and identifiable stream of thought. Frogs celebrates the tender proclivities of the most noble of all animals, by placing them in situations that would dismay a horde of saints. The Visible World is a roundup of appalling scenes of sub-rational political activity involving catalytic entities with a high ratio of motivation to altruism. And The Portfolio in Color appears like a rainbow at the end of all this exalted storminess to send readers out into the world whistling with delight. As with the previous hardcover edition, the grimmest drawings have been left out of this collection. 104 pages. Size (8x11)
