Jim Woodring’s recent drawings include the above pen-and-ink scene, a 5-foot-wide and 3-foot-tall work depicting what the artists calls “an open-air emergency room under the full moon.” The work took nine months to complete. The revered illustrator was featured way back in Hi-Fructose Vol. 3, a feature that was later part of Hi-Fructose Collected – Volume 1.
Celebrated artist and cartoonist Jim Woodring (featured way back in HF Vol. 2) is gearing up to debut his latest series of oil paintings and charcoal drawings for his solo show “YOU Drive!” opening at Scott Eder Gallery in Brooklyn on January 10. Woodring fills his latest work with copious oddball characters and unexpected, humorous twists. His chaotic scenes are rife with anthropomorphic animals, biblical allusions gone awry, alien invasions, and inexplicable supernatural occurrences. Check out our sneak peek below before his show opens.
