Daniel Clowes appeared at the 2012 Small Press Expo and sat down for, I believe, three panels. One of the panels was titled “Crockett Johnson’s Barnaby and the American Clear Line School.” The video of this has been on YouTube for some time now but I’d missed it until today because the YouTube page only lists the title, no description of the guests. Anyhow, that video you can find here:

The other SPX panels, which I believe I’ve posted before, you can find here:

Zine from 1987 with a cover said to be by Daniel Clowes. I could find no information on this. I’m thinking maybe the image was taken from somewhere else but that’s just a guess. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable on such things will say in time… For sale here:

On May 17, Daniel Clowes sat for a conversation with Hillary Chute as part of the current Wexner exhibitions. The video of this event is now online and above you have some screen captures from that video, showing a clearer look at the art for The Complete Eightball and early work for Cracked.

Cracked promotional item with early work by Daniel Clowes, via the Flickr of Gonked, Glooked & Slurped:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/gonkedglookedslurped/13170708005/

After publishing the first “Uggly Family” story in “Cracked’s Extra-Special Monster Party #9,” Mort Todd encouraged readers to send a SASE in for a free unpublished UF portrait (see below). Can’t imagine many people did so—thankfully, my pal Howie was intrepid enough to throw his hat in the ring, and he traded this gem to me 28 years (!) later. The 11 x 17 portrait features an almost unrecognizable Clowes rendering of the Uggly Family.
Mort Todd sez: “that is indeed Dan’s very first interpretation of the Uggly’s before we named ‘em, even! I would do the writing and layouts myself, and as you see this was plugging their second appearance which tied in with some Wolverton reprints.”

Dan Clowes interpretation of Jack Bilbo’s “The Strange Story of the Invisible Torture” 2003/1946
From the awesome Glenn Bray “Blighted Eye” book by Fantagraphics.

I hadn’t heard of this book before but I think I will be buying it soon. It’s described on Amazon as: “The Blighted Eye showcases Glenn Bray’s extensive collection of original comic art by cartoonists such as R. Crumb, Matt Groening, Charles Addams, Charles Schulz, Dan Clowes, Chris Ware and many more.” You can see a few pages previewed on the Amazon listing, including a couple of pages with original art by Clowes:
