Wilco is one of the most successful indie-rock bands. The unique dissonance (unresolved sound) of their music is perhaps a metaphor for the band leader's discontentment with his own music, which is arguably what drives their creative genius. This feeling of "not having arrived" is what motivates Wilco to grow as a band. These drawings were drawn until some outside disturbance interrupted the process, leaving the drawings feeling incomplete and unfinished.
