Jim Woodring’s ‘Frank’ – Animated

5 04 2010

I recently discovered a series of animations based on Jim Woodring’s ‘Frank’ comic books. Woodring’s work often defies attempts to deconstruct its highly surreal and visual narrative, but there’s no questioning the artistic merits of this groundbreaking comic book series. I’m particularly struck by the use of the drawn line as ‘texture map’ within a 3D environment. This animation is one of a limited series by various Japanese artists who have translated the comic book art into short animated tales.
