Cartoonist Daniel Clowes Pays Tribute to the Late, Great Philip Seymour Hoffman
It’s been two days since the news of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s tragic and untimely death. The loss ignited an outpour of emotions from those that knew him well, those that wish they’d known him, and collectively, the many, many who admired him both as a giant of the acting world and (from what it seems) a genuinely-kind human being. Today, famed comic artist Daniel Clowes (who you might also remember as the guy Shia LaBeouf plagiarized) released what might be the most touching tribute of them all: a collage of images highlighting the art made for a number of Hoffman’s projects. These include the artwork for indie films Happiness (created by Clowes, himself), The Savages (created by Chris Ware), along with a portrait from PSH’s interview in The Believer Magazine (created by Charles Burns). “The ambition, the drive, the wanting to be the center of attention, the wanting to succeed… They’re all inside me somewhere,” said the late actor. Yes, buddy, they sure are.
RIP, Philip Seymour Hoffman.
