Chris Ware Featured on Art21

Happened to stumble onto a segment of Artists of the 21st Century, aka Art21, which is a wonderful series covering contemporary art. And surprise, surprise their Chicago segment featured comic artist and illustrator Chris Ware.

Take a look. And a interesting write-up. Also check out Nick Cave, also in the Chicago segment.
