Seth's 48th birthday July 22, 2020

Perspective.  Seth was SO good at perspective.  He studied it of course, made a point of learning how it works, and how to use it.  But then he owned it, and he could play with it, as in the top page from WillWorld.  

Perspective gives me fits.  Seth recommended a book by David Chelsea, PERSPECTIVE FOR COMIC BOOK ARTISTS  which I am reading and trying to use, but I don't understand what he is talking about a lot of the time.  So it feels a little bit as though I am trying to read it in a foreign language.  

But especially today, thinking of Seth, I am persevering.

No doubt Seth mastered perspective. Wow. Laying out all those lines give me a headache. But it is so much fun to see the original art with all those grids, showing the way he thought.
Happy birthday, Seth. We miss you immensely.

(and thanks soooooooooooo much for the goodies, Vicki! As always, a real letter will follow...)
