Outtakes Of An American Genius Acclaimed cartoonist Chris Ware reveals the outtakes of his genius in these intimate, imaginative, and whimsical sketches collected from the years during which he completed his award-winning graphic novel Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid On Earth (Pantheon). This book is as much a companion volume to Jimmy Corrigan - one of the great crossover success stories - as a tremendous art collection from of one of America's most interesting and popular graphic artists. Ware has a passion for drawing that is surprisingly wideranging in style and subject. This book surprises the reader on every page with its sense of spontaneous vision. Architectural drawings from Chicago and interplanetary robot comics collide with cruelly doodled human figures and quietly troubling studies of still life. A must for people with a passion for modern design and old-fashioned style.

Author Biography

Jimmy Corrigan, Smartest Kid on Earth was the controversial winner of the Manchester Guardian's 2001 prize for Best First Novel. He is beloved by the comics world - and by the likes of Dave Eggers and Zadie Smith - however, Mr. Ware is an extraordinarily shy man. He lives in Chicago with his wife Marnie.
