We read on the great magazine site, It's Nice That, that the Angoulême comics festival started on Thursday, and one of the artists highlighted was Jim Woodring, someone we recognize and have always enjoyed his black and white works but especially his full color pieces. Woodring was born in Los Angeles in 1952, and in his bio, it reads, "He is best known for his wordless comics series depicting the follies of his character Frank, a generic cartoon anthropomorph whose adventures careen wildly from sweet to appalling. A decade’s worth of these stories was collected in THE FRANK BOOK in 2004. The 2010 Frank story WEATHERCRAFT won The Stranger’s Genius Award and was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for that year. The most recent Frank book, CONGRESS OF THE ANIMALS, was released in 2011." (via)
