What I lovethan anything is cartoons that have a real feel to them a past a history. Seth doesn t like drawing eyes and feet Feet, I understand, and yet he renders them quite well His buildings are superb In the middle of this handsome sketchbook circa 2000 , he started to avoid eyes Subsequent group shots have 3 4 of the people wearing opaque glasses or caught restfully mid blink The quantity of blinkers lend quiet grace to the pages But I can t help but notice roughly one set of minimal eyes in every group of eight For groups of four, everyone is blinking or wearing glasses Pre 2000, he does expressive eyes well Post 2000, blink, blink, glasses, blink, glasses, two tiny eye dots, and blink I wonder if he got bored with eyes, hates them, felt he spent too much time on them for paltry reward, etc What s the rationale, Seth Regardless, this is solid work. Vernacular Drawings doesn t give me much insight into Seth other than he likes to sketch old yearbook photos and deserted downtown streets I was hoping the sketchbook would include images that broke the norm or werepersonal Instead the book is just a polished collection of well drawn people and locations I mean, that s not necessarily a bad thing I just feel that Vernacular Drawings could have providedof a revelation see Chris Ware s sketchbooks with detailed masturbatory images
