Chris Ware QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Comics, at least in periodical form, exist almost entirely free of any pretense; the critical world of art hardly touches them, and they're 100% personal.
Quotation of Chris Ware
During my Austin years, I was drawing a regular strip for the University Of Texas newspaper, going to school, delivering blood, and trying to change my approach and "style" as much as I could, since I knew that I'd calcify as I got older.
Quotation of Chris Ware
I don't think it really has much to do with drawing quality. Some of the worst comic strips done have been drawn 'well.'
Quotation of Chris Ware
I don't think there's any independent cartoonist whose stuff I don't like or respect in at least some way or another. We're all marginal laborers - we're practically medical oddities - so I don't see why we can't all be nice to each other.
Quotation of Chris Ware
I guess I just don't like being physically in front of people I don't know very well, because I expect to be "seen through," or, even worse, instantly hated.
Quotation of Chris Ware
I guess I've read once or twice that people think I'm "trying to bum them out," which certainly isn't the case. I'm only trying to present as honest a portrayal of the grimness of human ambition as I can.
Quotation of Chris Ware
I prefer to imagine that my wife, a few friends, and occasionally my mom are the only ones who read what I do, though I realize that this is somewhat unrealistic.
Quotation of Chris Ware
I seem to have a limitless capacity for self-pity, so I began, naturally, to do stories about how lonely I felt, which became the beginnings of the Jimmy Corrigan story.
Quotation of Chris Ware
I think it has most to do with the way in which a story is told, whether it feels real either via the music of the telling or the 'honesty' of the story.
Quotation of Chris Ware
It's all nonsense, anyway - new or old - just stuff to amuse us while time passes, to "pretty things up," or to lend a dead sympathetic ear here and there.
Quotation of Chris Ware
Lately, I can't shake the feeling that I've been living a dream for the last 10 years or so; I can't account for most of my 20s, and I have to continually remind myself that certain people are dead now and many of my friends have children.
Quotation of Chris Ware
Mostly, I was only interested in television as a kid, and the majority of reading material I collected was an adjunct to that central concern, comic books and magazines included.
Quotation of Chris Ware
No one blames themselves if they don't understand a cartoon, as they might with a painting or "real" art; they simply think it's a bad cartoon.
Quotation of Chris Ware
Researchers try to "establish a dialogue" to "understand teenage frustrations," but don't these researchers remember that they were teenagers, too?
Quotation of Chris Ware
Sometimes I get worried I'm getting too caught up in the nauseatingly oily smoothness of my own line, when all I'm trying to do is make it as clear as possible.
Quotation of Chris Ware
The thing I don't understand is why so often one hears discussion of the fruits of human labor as if it's all the creation of some alien race.
