Another collector of art who asks for theme drawings from different artists is Steven Gettis, who asks artists to interpret their favorite literary figure or author or character. The resulting artwork is posted on his website Hey Oscar Wilde! It's clobberin' time!!!

Seth responded with this charming 2001 drawing of the Lilliputians from Gulliver's Travels.

I remember Seth being interested in Gulliver's Travels at one time; I suppose it was about that time; he was living near here then. I don't know if he ever actually read it, but it was one of the few times he expressed an interest in a literary classic; his usual reading material was nonfiction.
