Text Quotes
I’m not a freak. I’m not really crazy or anything. I don’t think I’m really abnormal. It’s just, like anybody else, I have interests I cultivate, and one of my interests is not getting too used to things. I’ve sacrificed a lot of things in my life in order to keep that sense of things being unfamiliar.  (Jim Woodring Quotes) That Moorish architecture is all over the place, of course. It affects me everywhere I see it, as it does so many people. But Brand Library was a special place to me, and I know I’ve paid homage to it many times in my drawings  (Jim Woodring Quotes) I’ve heard that Alfred Hitchcock said that by the time he was ready to shoot a film, he didn’t even want to do it any more because he’d already had all of the fun of working it out. It’s the same thing with these Frank comics  (Jim Woodring Quotes) The books that I do, the stories I write - I’m glad I’m able to do them, but they will quickly be swallowed up by the sands of time. Sometimes it frustrates me that I’m not able to do bigger, more important, more significant things. I guess you have to be content to do whatever it is you can do  (Jim Woodring Quotes) Cartoons are perhaps a bigger part of art than is generally realized, and they influence people in ways that are not always recognized. But creating a monumental work of architecture, or writing a great symphony, is something else. It’s a higher order of creation  (Jim Woodring Quotes) ONE OF THE BEST MEMORIES OF MY LIFE IS CONTEMPLATING THAT FIRST FINISHED DRAWING AND REALIZING I HAD CRACKED THE CODE, THAT I COULD MAKE DRAWINGS LIKE THIS WHENEVER I WANTED.  (Jim Woodring Quotes) Doing a story about my mundane, waking life, how much I don’t like my job, or breaking up with someone, I don’t think so. Those stories don’t interest me that much as a general thing.  (Jim Woodring Quotes) In a long story like ‘Weathercraft,’ it becomes kind of convoluted. It can become perhaps difficult to remember what led up to whatever point you’re at. I worried a little bit about people being able to keep the shape of the story in their heads while they were reading it, and not wonder how they got wherever they were.  (Jim Woodring Quotes) Everything I do tries to do the same thing, which is to express things that are hard to express, hidden things.  (Jim Woodring Quotes) Real shapes and real patterns are things you would observe in nature, like the marks on the back of a cobra’s hood or the markings on a fish or a lizard. Imaginary shapes are just that, symbols that come to a person in dreams or reveries and are charged with meaning.  (Jim Woodring Quotes) ONE OF THE BEST MEMORIES OF MY LIFE IS CONTEMPLATING THAT FIRST FINISHED DRAWING AND REALIZING I HAD CRACKED THE CODE, THAT I COULD MAKE DRAWINGS LIKE THIS WHENEVER I WANTED  (Jim Woodring Quotes) I’ve often thought I would like to try to write a conventional novel, but I just don’t know enough about the real world to write one  (Jim Woodring Quotes) The fiction I tend to like is nothing like my own work. I like the kind of writing that shows me things I don’t know about, and what I don’t know about is the everyday, normal world  (Jim Woodring Quotes) I think that cartoons have a lot more power than they’re given credit for  (Jim Woodring Quotes) It takes more drawing to tell a story in pantomime  (Jim Woodring Quotes) People aren’t interested in seeing themselves as they really are  (Jim Woodring Quotes) Comics could use more creators with something worthwhile to say  (Jim Woodring Quotes) Doing a story about my mundane, waking life, how much I don’t like my job, or breaking up with someone, I don’t think so. Those stories don’t interest me that much as a general thing  (Jim Woodring Quotes) Real shapes and real patterns are things you would observe in nature, like the marks on the back of a cobra’s hood or the markings on a fish or a lizard. Imaginary shapes are just that, symbols that come to a person in dreams or reveries and are charged with meaning  (Jim Woodring Quotes) I’m not a freak. I’m not really crazy or anything. I don’t think I’m really abnormal. It’s just, like anybody else, I have interests I cultivate, and one of my interests is not getting too used to things. I’ve sacrificed a lot of things in my life in order to keep that sense of things being unfamiliar  (Jim Woodring Quotes) When I was a kid, I used to see apparitions and have hallucinations, and my entire perception of the world was badly disoriented. And I had kind of a chaotic childhood because of that. I’ve really hung onto it, though. Because I actually like those feelings  (Jim Woodring Quotes) Every time I write something down I check it to see if it has that telltale glow, the glow that tells me there’s something there. If it glows, it stays. Everything is either on or off  (Jim Woodring Quotes) Alternative cartoonists have to rely on comic book stores to get their stuff in the hands of readers  (Jim Woodring Quotes)
