Jim Woodring

The Pensioner


An intaglio print on Rives Heavyweight printmaking paper, made from a richly-detailed charcoal drawing by Jim.

There he is, posing with his trophies in the last hours of his tragicomic career as a park frog. He may look like a vain old fool, but don’t you believe it. The Pensioner is one tough croaker, a survivor who knows how to work the system, and he’s connected. You’d better keep your head on straight, mister.

—Jim Woodring
