Today I found some wooden cabinets that comics creator Chris Ware made, influenced by Joseph Cornell. This cabinet has a slot for keys, and when you put one in, you get the first version of the Jimmy Corrigan “island story”. Apparently, many people mistook it for a coin slot, and on one financially desperate day he dissembled it to take out $10 in coins and went out and bought eggs, milk and tortillas.

And, of course, a Chris Ware post wouldn’t be complete without a robot reference.
