Legendary artist and cartoonist Jim Woodring has illustrated a new beautiful edition of the Gnostic allegorical head-trip, “Voyage to Arcturus.” Obscure while being influencial on some of our greatest creators (C.S. Lewis, Alan Moore, Clive Barker,) “Voyage to Arcturus” is like nothing else and only the master Woodring could illustrate it. Listen in as we talk about this bizarre Gnostic book as well as discuss Jim’s take on art, religion, and creativity.
