Entomological Aesthetics

This past Friday I attended the opening of the new Chris Ware exhibit at the Adam Baumgold Gallery in New York City. There were many notable personalities there that I spotted: Chip Kidd, Charles Burns, Fran├žoise Mouly, Adrian Tomine, and others. One attendee I didn’t expect to see, though, swooped in from the ceilings, decending on an acrylic-covered original and looked it over.

When I returned a bit later to see how this little fellow was faring, he was gone. Probably on to admire a different piece. But it just goes to show you: even the insects in Manhattan are critics.
