Chris Ware does the New YorkerChris Ware drew four different covers for the Thanksgiving issue of the New Yorker, and they all look terrific.
At the New Yorker site you an read his comic strip (a nice 1650x2250 scan -- thanks New Yorker!) and a five-minute interview with Ware (In MP3 format, not RealAudio -- thanks again, New Yorker!)
Waldo Jaquith of the Virginia Quarterly Review says:
Chris Ware also did the cover for the "Writers on Writers" special issue of Virginia Quarterly Review. We gave him the whole shebang -- front, back, spine -- and told him to go crazy. (And, lo, he did. And it was good.) We've got a 2000x1442 GIF of it for our fellow Ware fanboys.
