The Art of Daniel Clowes: Modern Cartoonist

The Art of Daniel Clowes: Modern CartoonistA good survey of Daniel Clowes’ career, with plenty of biographical insights.

I used to live for the next issue of Eightball. I found his drawing style engaging — not true for me with many comic artists — and his sensibility was exactly on target. The fact that he once drew the House of Boris sign, then a North Side Chicago landmark, sealed the deal. Clowes is near the top of my list of all-time favorite cartoonists, which for the record also includes (not in exact order):

  • Charles Addams
  • R. Crumb
  • Ernie Bushmiller
  • Gary Larson
  • Bill Watterson
  • Roz Chast
  • Chris Ware
  • Bil Keane
  • Charles Schulz
  • Gahan Wilson
  • Jack T. Chick
