ART SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL
Writer Dan Clowes talked to IGN’s FilmForce about the newest adaptation of his work. “It’s about as autobiographical as a dream is autobiographical,” Clowes said. “It’s taking the elements of my emotional life and dealing with being an artist for the last 20 years and putting them in a dramatic context. These are things that I think about and I worry about and occupy my unconscious at all times. As far as the events actually happening, they’re all bits and pieces of things that happened to me or happened to friends or stories I’ve heard. To some extent all of it is true, even the parts that don’t seem true.”
