HYDE PARK — The University of Chicago will display a trove of sketches and drawings from cartoonist Daniel Clowes.

“Integrity of the Page: The Creative Process of Daniel Clowes” will open March 28 at the Special Collections Research Center, 1100 E. 57th St.

The exhibit, which runs through June 17, will include sketches and drafts from Clowes’ award-winning graphic novels, including “The Death-Ray,” “Ice Haven” and “Mister Wonderful.”

“The exhibit pieces together these materials so that you can see the arc of Clowes’ art, from his beginning ideas and notebooks all the way through to publication,” curator Ashley Gosselar said.

Clowes will talk about his new book, “Patience,” and sign copies during a reception from 5-8 p.m. March 29 in Regenstein Library, Room 122, 1100 E. 57th St.

The work in the exhibit is part of the Daniel Clowes Archive, which the university acquired in 2015.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
