Frank in the 3rd Dimension

Jim Woodring

The description from Fantagraphic\’s website:

\”This is your chance to see Frank as you’ve never seen him before. Not the stark black-and-white Frank. Not even the glorious fully-painted Frank. No, this is Frank in the third dimension: about as real as you can get him outside of an Ionescoian theatrical performance (which could be next — watch your local theatre listings). Frank and Frank’s world are already hallucinatory, but seeing him in the most technologically advanced and artistically crafted 3-D ever produced is an experience that has to be savored to be believed. This is not your dad’s 3-D comic where you don red and blue-lensed glasses and the drawing looks like a few layers of cardboard cut-outs. Uh-uh. The 3-D process for Frank in the 3rd Dimension involves creating more than 150 layers per drawing in order to round and “sculpt” each image into full, volumetric 3-D. The results are mind-staggering. Frank in the 3rd Dimension is a series of Jim Woodring’s loveliest pictures — 32 anecdotal visual vignettes, dioramas, moments pickled in time (and now “space”) to be mused and mulled over. \\\”
