The Society of Illustrators is honored to have Chris Ware as this year’s main visual artist for the eighteenth annual MoCCA Arts Festival. This strong, graphic image will appear on signage and promotional materials for the MoCCA Arts Festival, to be held on April 4th and 5th at the spacious and modern Metropolitan West located at 639 West 46th Street in Manhattan.
Ware is among the most critically-acclaimed cartoonists working today. Since his work appeared in RAW Magazine in 1990, he has published a number of ground-breaking works including the ACME Novelty Library series, Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth, Building Stories, and Rusty Brown. In addition to his graphic novel work, Ware has created over twenty-five covers for The New Yorker.
Ware will be attending the Fest as a Guest of Honor. Further scheduling information about his attendance will be available in future announcements. To learn more about Chris Ware and this year’s MoCCA Arts Festival click here.
