Chris Ware

Chris Wares book 'Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth' is like a very fat comic book. Each page is visually stimulating, with many tiny illustrations that are beautifully coloured. As the thread of the story goes along it sometimes goes of on a tangent with little diagrammatic sections, it is incredibly detailed. It is very effective how he draws attention to certain things by drawing them a few times, getting closer each time, ending up with a close, cropped image.
