DANIEL CLOWES 2014 fine art print / special edition of 10 / $275.00 each

Drew Friedman rendered this portrait of cartoonist, illustrator, screenwriter and friend Daniel Clowes, at work in his studio.

Clowes launched his solo anthology comic book series Eightball in 1989. At first Clowes mainly presented humorous stories, but gradually began to introduce more reflective and literary themes. The comics were subsequently adapted into graphic novels. Such works as Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron redefined the graphic novel as an art form. The complete Eightball anthology is forthcoming from Fantagraphics.

His graphic novel Ghost World, about two girls and a nerdy record collector, was adapted into a film, which he co-scripted with director Terry Zwigoff (who directed Crumb). The film, which starred Thora Birch, Scarlett Johannson, and Steve Buscemi, earned Clowes an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. Another Eightball story, Art School Confidential, was adapted to film in 2006 (with Zwigoff as director).

Daniel's comic work has been anthologized and accorded countless honors, including a Pen Award for Outstanding Work in Graphic Literature, as well as over a dozen Harvey and Eisner Awards.

Drew Friedman has a personal connection to Clowes. When Drew served as comics editor for National Lampoon in 1990, he hired Clowes to produce a monthly comic. They remained friends and Clowes wrote the foreword to Friedman's anthology The Fun Never Stops! Clowes, like Friedman, owns a beagle (Ella).

Only ten (10) prints of DANIEL CLOWES were produced for this Special Edition. Each print is signed in the lower right by the artist, hand-titled in the center, and numbered in the lower left (all beneath the image). Print numbers 1/10 thru 7/10 have been sold, and we are now offering number 8/10, unframed, for $275 (plus shipping & handling). Prices will increase for remaining prints as the edition depletes. However, prints 9/10 and 10/10 can be purchased at the current price if purchased at the same time as 8/10. These prints are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the run sells out, the work will not be offered in any other fine art print format.

The image area is 15" high x 10-3/4" wide centered on an untrimmed 19" x 13" sheet. Paper, ink, and production specifications, as well as shipping details, are available on our PRINT SPECS page.
