Jim Woodring

Jim Woodring was born in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains in Southern California and enjoyed an exciting childhood full of poetry and paroniria among the snakes, rats, and tarantulas of that enchanted realm. He eventually grew into an inquisitive bearlike man who has had three exciting careers: garbage collector, merry-go-round-operator, and cartoonist. His work has been collected in several books from Fantagraphics, including Weathercraft, Congress of the Animals, and Fran, and in various toys, fabrics, prints, and urban legends.
