Chris Ware has done the opening animation for Showtime’s THIS AMERICAN LIFE show, debuting Thursday. The show is an adaptation of the NPR show that looks at ordinary lives. You can view the animation here.


  1. I saw this live at the Chicago performance of This American Life and was blown away. A few years before, he had a “magic lantern” show for the live “Lost (in America)” show, dealing with Chicago architecture that he actually made space-specific for the Chicago Theater as well. It’s available as a DVD out there. Amazing stuff.
