5 days until the release of “The Art of Daniel Clowes: Modern Cartoonist”! (…plus your chance to win an autographed copy today)

…and our countdown continues with more Clowes extras that couldn’t be included in the book.

Joey Ramone talks about Clowes and I Don’t Want to Grow Up 
& the Launch of the danielclowesdotcom youtube Channel

Daniel Clowes drew the art for the Ramones animated music video for their cover of Tom Waits's “I Don’t Want to Grow Up” in 1995. This clip, transferred from one of Dan's dusty old VHS tapes, features Joey Ramone talking with Jerry Bryant about his collaboration with Clowes. We’ve included some storyboards for the video.

With this post, we are officially launching the danielclowesdotcom youtube channel where we will post more archaic oddities that we found in an old box of VHS tapes in Dan’s basement.

The Art of Daniel Clowes: Modern Cartoonist will be available April 1st. Order a copy today from your local bookseller, the publisher, or Amazon.
