I really don’t remember why I have this page bookmarked. Honest.

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.
Jim Woodring‘s work is a few steps beyond Advanced Tublication; his “Frank” series combines 1930’s cartooning with fever-inspired nightmares. You gotta check out “The Book of Jim.” Woodring’s an excellent (if not mildly disturbed) illustrator.
The only way (in Bunk’s amateur opinion) that he could pull this off is with a stacked 2-way stripper deck, some false shuffles, false cuts, a few flourishes, and great slight-of-hand. Ricky Jay is probably The Best card manipulator in the business. [Found via Edenborough.]
