Artist Jim Woodring has updated his site with a bunch of new sketches, animations, and prints.
Here for you is the fledgling edition of The Woodring Monitor. It
consists of links to: some new sketchbook pages, the previously
unpublished text of a talk given last summer in San Francisco, tin toy
animations by Bob Smolenski, some new merchandise, a small selection of
new art for sale, and a little news.
Peace and love,
(Just write back if this is an unconscionable intrusion into your inbox
and I swear I'll never bother you again.)

appeal to those of you who miss the days of Jim Magazine
