New Comic Book Day: Frank in the 3rd Dimension by Jim Woodring


FRANK-in-3rd-Dimension-coverThis 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. 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. 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 — including never before published anecdotal visual vignettes, dioramas, moments pickled in time (and now “space”) to be mused and mulled over.
