The Paris Review
Original cover art for the fall 2014 issue of The Paris Review, which featured a lengthy interview with Ware by comics scholar Jeet Heer. This gorgeous fall image is a classic, and the full original an excellent example of Ware’s all-encompassing approach to cover design. Ink, blue pencil, and small areas of white paint on heavy Bristol board, 28 x 20.”
Designed as a 5-color silkscreen/one-time premiere poster for Cinefamily’s screening of Charlie Kaufman’s 2015 Academy Award nominated stop-motion animated film Anomalisa, this haunting image was never published. The original is absolutely massive and beautifully detailed, incorporating the hallmarks of Ware’s recent work: emotionally moving imagery, striking design, and beautiful lettering. Ink, blue pencil, small areas of red pencil, and small areas of white paint on heavy Bristol board, measuring 29 x 23.”
My Father's Tears
This original art done for the cover of John Updike’s My Father’s Tears elegantly demonstrates Ware’s mastery of hand lettering, a hugely important aspect of his comic work. Ink, blue pencil, and small areas of white paint on heavy Bristol board, 20 x 17.75.”
