REALITY DOES INDEED DIFFER DRASTICALLY


After the Gage demo. Note that the nib in the holder is not the brass-plated one (below) but a finer raw steel model, held in place with scrap paper and wood.

So, how many nibs did you make for it, then? Any calligraphic ones in the works?

So are you going to be selling any of these giant pen pieces? I'd like to own a piece of art history.

Is there footage of you making a drawing with it?

Oh and by pieces I meant the large drawings you make with the pen, not the pen itself.

Jim, I love your art.

Saw this, reminded me (in a reverse way) of your Giant Nib.

I just want to say thanks for giving me and other interested viewers the chance to use the Nibbus Maximus; it was wonderful to be part of this crazy bit of performance art.

This strikes me as great photo reference for "The Apotheosis of Woodring." Now we just have to get Ingres painting again! Future art students will mistake the giant pen in the painting for a symbol. The professor will correct them: no J.W. actually had a pen that size. Generations of distortion and misconception will follow!

I've been blogging about artists discovering how to make their signature marks. I read online (blogreader.net/12) of the thrill and recognition you felt when you "finally successed in making the kind of drawing you wanted to make" with Barnyard Trouble.

I was wondering if you have a story of discovery about when you started making your engraving-like wavy pen-lines.

Sorry if you've answered that question a million times. I've been looking online and haven't found the story.

Eccentric old coot with an envious phallus scrawling a tale of
Insanity. I dare to be him , from it large head drops lucid ink black and
lossless void and trapping. from whence this mysterioso has appeared.
from bottomless pit or gaping mouth sky. God only knows. That lingering eye. Father to the blameless.


Jim woodring ponders.

In another much-publicized case, issues have been raised about the underlying motives that led to the balloon boy hoax, in which six-year-old Falcon Heene was reportedly coerced by his father to stage for a frantic.

When exposed to an exaggeration or fabrication about certain real-life occurrences or facts, some people will perceive the fictional account as being more true.

Cool, but I think it would work better if you used more viscous ink to simulate surface tension.
