Chris Ware

Chris Ware is one of the animators for this american life, which is a popular show on NPR. He is originally a famous cartoonist from his days creating Acme Novelty Library. Acme Novelty Library put him on the map nationally and his characters such as Quimbly the Mouse.

His style to me seems so familiar, I'm not sure if it due to the fact that his fact has been that influential or if his work is just that embedded around us. Either way his work is refreshing and simple. The style is minimalist with clean lines that are influenced as much by design as they are by classic cartoons. The NPR dialogue matches his work perfectly. I haven't listened to people tell stories on the radio like this but it is amazing.
