On Comics: Daniel Clowes

Daniel Clowes creator of Ghost World and Art School Confidential is about to open a retrospective of his work at the Oakland Museum of California. The show will travel to museums in Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Cleveland.

“I never thought of myself as a museum artist who’s doing work for the wall,” he said. “For me the book is the final result.” He assumes that most people who see his work at the museum won’t know who he is. “But if they have some connection to something they see,” he added, “and then they read the book, the more I’ll feel like the show was a success.”
“That’s my goal,” Mr. Clowes said. “To get you not to remember that you’re reading a comic, to feel like you’re in this story.”
