Roq la Rue Gallery is proud to present a show of drawings, paintings and illustrations by two of the world's premiere cartoonists, Daniel Clowes and Chris Ware. Ware, the acclaimed author of the bestselling JIMMY
CORRIGAN graphic novel, will be making his first-ever public appearance in Seattle, while Clowes, author of DAVID BORING and the upcoming GHOST WORLD film, will be making his first appearance in eight years, ensuring their joint show at Roq La Rue and book signing at Confounded Books will be THE art events of the season.

Clowes and Ware are both published by Seattle's own FANTAGRAPHICS BOOKS. Both artists will be showing a variety of work at Roq La Rue, including comics, illustrations, paintings and multimedia, most of which has never been exhibited or available for sale before.

The Roq La Rue opening reception for the show is Friday night, May 11th from 6-10pm. The artists will be in attendance (but not signing books -- see next paragraph), DJ's will be spinning tunes, and libations will be served. Be sure not to miss the art party of the spring!

The following day -- Saturday, May 12th -- Ware & Clowes will be onhand at Fremont's Confounded Books from 2-4 pm, signing copies of their books and comics.
