Bio:
Chris Ware, one of many artists whose work has appeared in Raw magazine, has drawn for many publications, including New City and the New York Times. He was inspired by Joost Swarte and other European "clear line" artists as well as the classical American newspaper comics. But Ware also has a lot of his own ideas. He is particularily famous for his 'Miniature Workings', do-it-yourself kits integrated in his comics, like his 'The Acme Novelty Library', in which the reader has to assemble a bookshelf and the books to put in it. Many fans are now addicted to these stylish kits. Chris Ware is a master of composition and color and held to be one of the bright hopes of the American comic.
