Daniel Clowes Shows Originals in Retrospective of His Work


 Daniel Clowes, who you might know from Ghost World or Art School Confidential, if you never read his books, has a show at the OMCA that runs till August 12.

The Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) has pulled together originals – a rare insight into working as the nature of a comic artist’s work is that it is made to be seen in a published format – with the exhibits ranging from 1989 to 2011; 22 years in which he would break new narrative ground for comics, summoning mordant wit and disaffected cool into characters with realism that are always relevant.
