If you know Woodring's work, you will love this twisted little tome. Those new to J.W. are directed to the Frank Book, and the intrepid may proceed from there. A compilation of sketchbook drawings, Problematic is at turns dark and disturbing, hilarious and delightful, enigmatic and ineffable....just like life itself.
This high quality hardback book will fascinate and frighten for hours, and should be kept in the same place as the volatile solvents, kitchen knives, and prescription medications. In other words, out of the reach of small children and household pets.
We should all give thanks that Jim lives in his head, such that we don't have to. His is a necessary endeavor, not unlike a shaman who ingests sacred plants in order to bring us visions from co-existent universes.
Then again, maybe that is exactly who he is.
Thank you, Mr. Woodring.
I will be careful not to look between these covers when it is too close to bedtime when I am home alone.
On the other hand.......

I've been a fan of Jim Woodring's work since I first stumbled upon the surreal adventures of Frank, his anthropomorphic everycreature, in a comic book store many years ago. Woodring continues to create alternative universes populated with strange creatures living beyond the borders of logical, linear thought, crawly outlandish beasts that might exist in outer space or the depths of the sea, and this wonderful collection of notebook drawings gives us a peek behind the scenes to watch the creative process at work. Woodring's masterful pen and ink artwork often reaches the level of classical engravings, the details of which create a convincing dream state that makes you laugh out loud one moment, and feel you've discovered an ancient philosophical book of wisdom the next. These are postcards mailed along the hero's journey. Transcendental and luminous head cartoons. Good stuff!!! Problematic: Sketchbook Drawings 2004-2012

Jim Woodring’s offerings are usually in ‘comic book’ format, this book brings you a different aspect of the creative nature of the man. Each drawing is a portrait that is produced in a short timeframe. The materials needed are portable, making it possible for the work to be more impulsive and spontaneous. It was well reproduced and the drawings reveal every pencil line and ‘first draft ghost image’ that went into the process.
I am a fan of his work, and comic art in general, so this was a ‘must have’ purchase.

If you're a fan of Jim Woodring, this is a must-have. You can get this product on his website for $100.00 with a hand-drawn sketch by Mr.Woodring on the last page, totally worth it to support such an amazing artist. If you're not already a fan, then I'd recommend The Frank Book as your introduction...you'll be shelling out your hard earned money to support this artist in no time, haha.

Problematic: Sketchbook Drawings 2004-2012 is like owning one of Jim's own sketchbooks, a rare glimpse into an unfiltered collection of random ideas of his.

The only thing I had an issue with is that the entire marketing of this product reads like an advertisement for Moleskine sketchbooks.

I have plans for this. Big plans. You should watch the news very, very carefully, up to--let's say about August 3rd. Maybe the 5th, if it rains a lot in the interim.
