I enjoy a good healthy snicker as well as the next man; still, I wish he'd stop it. Is this sly trope misleading? Hardly. There's plenty of eyebrow-raising action ahead. This is only the first panel. There are literally hundreds more to follow, so take your meds and rest your eyes.

I cut the deck to the Queen of Spades, but the cards were all the same.

Hey Jim Woodring, I came across a nice comment on my blog that you left last summer-I hadn't looked at it for a while. I was really pleased that you liked my drawings of the odyssey as I had come across your Frank series in Marin back in 1994 in some catalog and they hit me where I lived as well. I thought-this is the sort of stuff I should be doing and it got me drawing strips/storyboards again. I'm afraid that the blog is the only "publication" those drawings have recieved. You are the second graphic(underground cartoonist?) artist I have ever contacted, the first was Justin Green who wrote back years ago. The fact that you liked what I did makes me think there is some wierd but direct link between certain tastes/thinking- do you find old alchemical illustrations compelling, as I do, without in the least verbally understanding what they are about?

Hey Jim, looks like you need to activate the "word verification" on your blog comments to foil these pesky spammers. Or perhaps you enjoy the flavor of Spam?:-)

Keep up the fantastic work!

Hello, Jim Woodring, I've read in Tim Maloney's book that you're an artist who is extremely talented in terms of materializing your dreams. I was wondering if you could help me. I myself am an aspiring/starting artist, and I would love to be an animator someday. However, I still lack a lot of things. But I specifically came here to ask you to help me to actually use, or even manipulate my dreams. I have a handful of unforgettable dreams in my stead, and I would definitely like to have more of the said dreams to use as ideas. I know that you're not a dreamsage, but since you rely on dreams so much, I'm guessing that you're an expert at letting it explode in a variety of things. Therefore, what tips would you give me to make my dreams more... "enthralling," "grand" and "descriptive" enough to be used as ideas?

Well, anonymous, I suggest you start experimenting; and if those experiments work out, use those techniques.

Good luck.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
