Chris Ware

Enough has probably been written on this man, but, I've re-discovered his books. It never ceases to amaze me the incredible quality and quantity he's done. He got his start contributing to RAW magazine out of Chicago, a monthly comic compilation featuring various artists.

His work tends to be pretty downbeat, all the while compiled in a classic, ultra detailed format, complete with his own custom ads and hand typography.

I also discovered a piece of animation he produced from the This American Life TV show (on Showtime). It's a pretty brilliant story-telling using his work:
