‘Building Stories,’ by Chris Ware

A good example of the fantastic level of layout and detail in Chris Ware's work.

As a narrative artist, Chris Ware is interested in more than the appearances of people and places. His carefully rendered snapshots of roadside locales, is so real and so powerful, and so AMERICAN. So descriptive of America, that is. All of the work he does speaks to a very specific sense of observation, and it's all rendered in straight lines. Amazing.

Chris Ware's sectional axonometric comic.  Frames on a page as rooms in a brownstone.  Genius fusion of comics and architecture.
