Craig Thompson's Blankets: Comics as Emotion
The elements of visual storytelling combine in a beautiful statment on art, love, religion and growing up.
On the surface it just looks like a 582 page comic book (which is something extraordinary in itself), but you get the feeling from reading it that Craig Thompson's Blankets may in fact be the world's longest hand-written letter. And yet at the same time, although I adore comics from the bottom of my heart, it's one of the few that I cannot type without giving it the literary underline. The book is heavy -- it's the largest graphic novel ever published in the United States. Thompson wrote it over a period of three years, and unlike many book-length comics on the shelves it was published as a complete work instead of first seeing life as a serial. And it covers those heavy topics not often associated with comic books: religion, alienation, sexual abuse, first love, family and self-discovery.
Perhaps the greatest triumph of Blankets is that despite its weight, it never feels heavy. The brushstrokes are earnest and open; the story is autobiographical, but never becomes self-important. Thompson draws us into a specific time and place in his life - rural Wisconsin in 1992 when grunge was in and the snow was deep, and although he clearly wants us to be able to relate, there's no sense that he's trying to tell a universal story that the whole audience will understand, just "Here's some stuff that happened to me one time." In a way that would be impossible in almost any other medium, Thompson's tone is instantly personal.
Thompson ties all those deep, heavy themes up in a motif that is suitable for a book called "Blankets": what it's like to sleep next to someone. The book alternates between his misfit grade school years when he and his younger brother were forced to share a bed together and his senior year of high school, when he meets another outcast, girl named Raina who becomes his first love and kindred spirit. Their relationship makes up the main narrative of the book, with the childhood segments weaving in and out like thematic threads holding the piece together.
Raina and Craig meet at a Christian ski camp over Christmas break, and once they return home to their respective states, begin writing to each other. "Our letters were a flirtation," Thompson writes, "-from timid notes - to perfumed packages overflowing with flowers and poems, tape-recorded love songs, and sweet high school nothings." On the text page he goes on to describe the alluring loops of Raina's handwriting, through which he feels a deeply personal and sexual connection with her and finds himself masturbating for the "one and only time" of his senior year of high school.
In stark contrast to the underground commix of the '60s and '70s which depicted sexuality in grotesque, perverted ways that reveal the author's resentment towards the opposite sex and loathing of him or herself, and the early '90s work of authors like Seth and Dan Clowes, who lay on the irony and often express detachment and alienation when dealing with sex, Thompson treats it as something that is sweet and sacred. There are now halos instead of Crumb's sweat beads. Expressive, earnest brushstrokes replace Clowes' calculated, judgmental lines.
These are qualities found throughout Thompson's work, not just the sexual imagery. Thompson isn't drawing for accuracy or stylistic unity - he's drawing for expression. Each page, each panel, each line emotes. There's life, expression and emotion swirling constantly throughout Blankets - Thompson wants us not so much to see these characters as to feel them.
The result is a style that Scott McCloud would certainly appreciate, but does not talk about in much detail in his book Understanding Comics. McCloud is primarily concerned with the idea of iconic imagery and how it creates identification and emotion in the reader - he talks a lot about how we relate to cartoon images because of their simplicity. In one panel McCloud shows a round, simply drawn man relaxing in a room full of bubbly furniture as a radio spews forth four music notes. "When cartoons are used throughout a story the world of that story may seem to pulse with life," McCloud writes. To some extent Thompson uses these techniques - his characters are often drawn very simply - dots for eyes, two lines for a nose, one line for a mouth. When depicting himself and his younger brother as children Thompson's style is particularly cartoony and their faces not that far removed from McCloud's iconic face everyone can identify with.
However, there's more to Blankets than just straight cartooning and simple faces - while Thompson always keeps things solidly out of the photo-realistic realm, drawing more for representation and easy reading than accurate depiction, he uses different techniques to distance the reader from his characters as well. Thompson sometimes draws his character as very angular - his chin is square, his face narrow and his arms and legs sometimes almost impossibly lanky. This emphasizes his own awkwardness with his body and the world around him, but also makes him into more of a specific person and less of simply a stand-in for the reader. Not everyone knows what it's like to be tall and bony, though perhaps through Blankets one could get a better idea. In addition to giving the character of Craig specific physical traits that distinguish him from the average reader, Thompson gives him a triangular nose for a large part of the middle section of the book. More than just a triangle shape to represent a nose, his nose becomes an actual, well-rendered, three-dimensional triangle, looking something like the hand on a sundial. While it's an abstract representation, which would normally leads to more viewer association, it stands out distinctly from the way the rest of the characters are drawn, and serves to actually distance the reader from Craig. Every time we see that nose we're reminded that we're looking at a drawing, most likely a self-portrait of a self-conscious artist.
It's interesting that this transformation happens when Craig is spending two weeks with Raina and most intimately connected to her. Possibly the sundial nose is a way of showing how awkward he feels around her, or maybe just how much more he is aware of his physical presence. It could also be to show her acceptance of him "warts and all." Thompson could also have been intentionally distancing the reader so that they see the romance sections of the book as being about two specific people rather than any two people. However, if this was his intention, it clashes with his depiction of Raina. Raina is rarely depicted in the comic as anything less than beautiful. For the most part Thompson paints her so ideally that a reviewer in the LA Weekly called it "distracting." For large sections of the book it is hard to relate to Raina because we can only see her as gorgeous, the way Craig sees her. She has no physical features that really stand out - the close-ups of her when she's sleeping are quite detailed, and while they look like a specific person, each face looks slightly different, and nothing is made to stand out. The only thing consistent about Raina's appearance is her beauty. Once again Thompson's images aren't accurate, or even iconic - they are simply expressive.
This is where Thompson's approach is different from those outlines in McCloud's book. McCloud suggests that the most powerful images are ones that are the most objective - things every reader can look at and relate to. This amounts to iconic characters and objects (oh, that's a guy holding a coffee cup), as well as detailed backgrounds (oh, those are the fijords of Norway). Thompson, however, uses mostly subjective images. Not subjective in a realistic sense, but subjective in that we are made to see the subjects the way that he sees them. A game room is chaotic and frightening, a girl he's in love with is beautiful every second of the day, a choir singing around him can be fake, empty and damning. His backgrounds aren't drawn realistically: they swirl when Craig gets up late, are crooked in an awkward first encounter, and are filled with light when Raina's near.
McCloud's comics, as descriptive as they can be, often seem somewhat cold - like a crosswalk sign. We can relate to the man crossing the street, we understand what the symbol means, and it's useful. But what about the intent of the artist? Well, he wasn't very involved in the creation of the sign. McCloud is very involved with the creation of his book, but gets his message across mostly through symbols - his avatar's facial expressions often tell us how he feels, and not coincidentally, how we should feel. McCloud is dealing with the realm of ideas, and his language is like the Egyptians hieroglyphics he proclaims to be comics - iconic representation with a purposeful message. This isn't simply how he writes his own comics, but how he talks about, and encourages us to think about other comics.
Thompson's Blankets, however, hardly feels stately or purposeful at all. He isn't telling us what to think or feel, but rather, creating a mood. He's showing us how he feels, and it's emotions rather than ideas that are communicated. Like handwriting that becomes soft and careful when the author is thoughtful and sentimental, and then becomes sloppier and jagged when he is excited or angry, Thompson draws Blankets in a way that reveals not just its subject, but its creator as well.
