Dorbel - Hong Kong Brown 

Description:

There have been at least two Dorbel sightings in Woodring's work before he went three-dimensional. He shows up early in Mysterio Simpatico, Woodring's multimedia collaboration with jazz guitarist Bill Frisell. He is also partially glimpsed in "Frank Amok" (2001), which is reproduced in the final pages of The Frank Book.

In vinyl form, Dorbel's six points of articulation enable him to assume a number of poses, thereby amplifying his insider's squint, not to mention the inscrutable significances of those fabulous teeth.
