Chris Ware Quote: “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.”
Chris Ware Quote: “The real power of comics is writing as you draw.”
Chris Ware Quote: “I don’t think of myself as an illustrator. I think of myself as a cartoonist. I write the story with pictures – I don’t illustrate the story with the pictures.”

Chris Ware Quote: “I guess we all make choices as to how we want to live, right?”

Chris Ware Quote: “A book sometimes seems to impose a through-line to life that real life doesn’t actually have.”
Chris Ware Quote: “I still can’t get over the idea that respectable adults now go to see superhero movies and that such films get reviewed in the ‘New Yorker.’ Clearly, I am seriously out of step with the times.”

Chris Ware Quote: “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.”
Chris Ware Quote: “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.”

Chris Ware Quote: “I can definitely say that of all my friends who I consider to be really great cartoonists, we’re all trying to aim at basically the same thing, which is an ever closer representation of what it feels like to be alive.”
Chris Ware Quote: “Cartoons are not real drawings, because they are drawings intended to be read.”
