Two favorites, working together! This short cartoon* based on the Quimby the Mouse comics by master cartoonist Chris Ware and features an old Andrew Bird song (“50 Pieces” from his album Thrills) for its soundtrack. Ware also designed and drew the packaging and inserts for Bird’s album Oh, The Grandeur!, which came with a cool poster that I kept under glass on my drawing desk and looked at every day. Being the klutz that I am, it was inevitable when I spilled ink and it seeped under the glass and ruined the whole thing.
