"Can anyone tell me what that is on the front inside cover? That fingerprint-looking pattern thing. Is is it just some sort of pattern or the backing of some sort of art product or something like that?"
Instead of answering the question we've decided to turn it into another contest and ask everyone:
The first 3 entries to correctly answer this question (if there are 3) will receive an autographed OMCA Modern Cartoonist Exhibition brochure autographed by Daniel Clowes as well as 2 Mister Jones pins and maybe some other crap. Please send entries along with your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org
The contest winners and the answer will be announced here on danielclowes.com in about a week.
Please help spread the word that this contest is up by 'sharing' on Facebook and 'RTing' on Twitter. Thanks!
The Wanderlust club/restaurant/megaplex opened last night in Paris. You can see the illustrations that Clowes created for Wanderlust's logo, posters, coasters, pizza boxes, etc. on their facebook page and on their design firm's website. This club was created by the company that worked with David Lynch on the Mullholland Drive inspired Club Silencio, another extravagant Paris nightclub.
