This time the acclaimed Fantagraphics Studio Edition series turns the spotlight to the most frequently demanded creator to be included in the series since its launch in 2017: Daniel Cowes. With best-selling graphic novels such as Ghost World, Patience, the Death Ray, and many others, Cowes has one of the richest bodies of work in the current era. Featuring over 120 pages of museum quality original artwork, the pieces are individually selected and by the author; each exquisitely reproduced in full colour. A stunning collection of art from a contemporary master.
Daniel Clowes is a celebrated graphic novelist, Academy-Award nominated screenwriter, and frequent cover artist for the New Yorker. He lives in Oakland, CA. He is a multi-Harvey, Eisner, and Ignatz Award winner, and his papers were recently acquired by the University of Chicago library.
The Daniel Clowes aesthetic, delivered through his numerous comics, album covers, book illustrations and film work, has made a distinctive impression on the culture. Original Art: Daniel Clowes takes readers into Clowes' artistic process, with museum-worthy reproductions of his illustrations, including several never-before-seen works. Drawing from Clowes' groundbreaking comic book Eightball and best-selling graphic novels Ghost World, Ice Haven, Wilson, and Patience, Original Art lets readers explore his stories from perspectives not available in the finished publications.
