A New Dimension with Jim Woodring at Fantagraphics Bookstore


Join us at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery on Saturday, January 9 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM as Jim Woodring and collaborator Charles Barnard present Frank in the 3rd Dimension, a sensational publication featuring 3-D renderings of Woodring’s signature motifs

This anxiously anticipated 3-D imagery was unveiled in a presentation last March at Cornish Theater and was included in the “Genius” exhibition this fall at Seattle’s Fry Art Museum. Woodring’s visionary imagery uniquely lends itself to this treatment. The 3-D process for Frank in the 3rd Dimension involved creating more than 150 layers per drawing in order to sculpt each image into full, volumetric 3-D. The results are breathtaking. Technician Charles Barnard will also appear at the book launch party. Each book comes supplied with a colorful pair of Woodring-designed 3-D glasses. Examples from the 32-page volume will be on display.

The public is invited to celebrate this remarkable achievement with two exceptional artists. The book signing on January 9 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM coincides with the colorful Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack featuring lively visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic arts corridor. Fantagraphics Bookstore is located at 1201 S. Vale Street, just minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.
