Writer/artist, Eightball, Ghost World, Patience
Daniel Clowes is a New York Times bestselling cartoonist, Academy Award–nominated screenwriter, and PEN award–winning New Yorker cover artist from California's Bay Area (by way of Chicago). His seminal series Eightball began in 1989 and sparked an alternative comics revolution; it produced the Eisner, Harvey, and Ignatz award-winning stories Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, Ghost World, and Ice Haven, among others. His works Ghost World, Art School Confidential, and most recently Wilson have all been adapted into acclaimed films with screenplays by Clowes. His newest graphic novel, Patience (published by Fantagraphics), is his most ambitious book yet, and one of the most hotly anticipated releases of 2016.
