Too big, in fact

Oh boy. It is very strange to see so many human beings in a "Frank" landscape.

It's as if all these people have somehow broken out of a Bible story and invaded the world of Frankā€”and now they're doing something horrible there?

But it's just a painting, of course.

Wow! I feel like I prayed to one of the Comics Gods and my prayer was answered!

Thank you for posting the enlargement of the detail!

Recently I heard an online broadcast of some well known cartoonist talking about seeing your work up close in a gallery. I tried to remember who it was but I couldn't.

But they said in substance that usually seeing the work of other cartoonists up close gave them the pleasure of seeing erasures and corrections and other evidence that a respected colleague was human. Your work, they said, gave them no such satisfaction.

Examining the detail you provided, I have to agree your work is flawless. Which is to say that you obviously have such a work ethic and such a respect for your craft that you don't allow flaws to leave your studio. Your work is remarkable in so many ways and this is not the least of them.

You are a far horizon in the world of comics. Any ambitious wannabe must come to terms with the primal scene of your liaison with the medium.

Thank you truly for that post. I admire you work and appreciate your giving me the opportunity to learn from you.


ps. To Colman g, I don't know if we can be certain that those are humans. They seem a bit too far away to be certain of that ...

What would be really crazy is if you got some fine horse hairs to use as a brush and a magnifying lense to paint some insanely small but detailed smaller painting inside the painting inside the... painting.

Aeron: But then he would be painting that picture forever and there would never again be a new Jim Woodring painting! Who wants that?
