[comic art] Why I Admire Barry Deutsch

2322.This illustration of Mirka's family from Hereville is a good example of why I admire his work so much:

It's hard to argue that there's true talent when such simple lines can weave such an emotional story in one single panel.

It doesn't matter what kind of family you grew up in … if you grew up in a family, and that includes most of us, this will resonate with you. It's human.

You're welcome. It's sincere – you really have to know where you are with your talent to be able to depict a family whose experience is so different from mine but still who speaks to something very universal.

Also, I've always admired your drawing style. Charles Schulz had it when he complimented Calvin and Hobbes: you have to enjoy the way the cartoon looks. I enjoy every panel you draw.
