Daniel Clowes previews Chicago mural in MCA show
"Whenever someone mentions Chicago to me these days, whenever someone just says the word 'Chicago,' literally the first thing I think of are carpet ads," cartoonist Daniel Clowes said this week from his home in Oakland, Calif. "Magikist signs, Mohawk ads. Especially that 'HUdson 3-2700' jingle. That's lodged in my head. And that's my Chicago. I don't even remember the '90s, and I don't accept Millennium Park or The Bean. Chicago 1972 to 1979 is what I remember, and so I figured that's the Chicago that I'd give them."
