I can't wait for this documentary about cartoonist Jim Woodring. When is it coming out?
The Lobster and the Liver' is a documentary about the Seattle cartoonist Jim Woodring. We chart his journey as a child experiencing terrifying hallucinations, through his troubled youth as a prankster and alcoholic, and examine his current status as a master craftsman and seeker of spiritual truth. As well as displaying his incredibly surreal artwork, we also interview his family and friends and some notable cartoonists, including Peter Bagge, Ellen Forney, and Jim Blanchard.
