Chester Brown

I absolutely loved this one. Chester Brown's adolescence portrait drew me in completely. His seemingly distancing problem struck a chord with me. his inner battles of convincing himself to say the 'right thing' is a very true and accurate picture of mind and a lot of peoples inner turmoil. Events pass us by and we wonder 'If only I would have...'. Maybe then we wouldn't be cutting ourselves our tapping a vein.

The artwork is simple but fits the format wonderful, same as the position of the panels. The flow and feel of this melodramatic portrait is truly enhanced by the art style.I was actually stricken aghast when I saw his mother crippled and wasted lying in bed (pg162) and his reluctance to open up.

A very powerful piece of art.
