R. Crumb's snapshots: Source material of the legendary comic artist
What his focus on such unsightly minutia in this anthology suggests, is that as outlandish, garish, or other-worldly as Crumb's cartoons get, their lasting affect comes from always being firmly grounded to the banal referents of our real world.

"People don't draw it, all this crap, people don't focus attention on it because it's ugly, it's bleak, it's depressing," he says, "The stuff is not created to be visually pleasing and you can't remember exactly what it looks like. But, this is the world we live in; I wanted my work to reflect that, the background reality of urban life."

The bleak brilliance of Nick Drnaso’s graphic novels
Drnaso, who is twenty-nine, was promoting “Sabrina,” his graphic novel about a young man in Chicago who is devastated by his girlfriend’s sudden disappearance. Did Sabrina just leave him, or was she kidnapped or murdered? He flees the mystery, and the attendant media frenzy, seeking refuge with an old buddy in Colorado Springs. Strangers learn of awful news before he does. The Internet first denies him the privacy of his grief, and then, when the fringe weighs in, upends his certainty about Sabrina’s fate. “Sabrina” depicts an eerie world of orderly tract homes, tidy parking lots, and empty streets, where roiling emotions have been displaced onto computer screens, and where powerful people make reckless pronouncements based on bottomless skepticism.

The Bleak Brilliance of Nick Drnaso’s Graphic Novels | The New Yorker
Drnaso has held jobs ever since he was a teen-ager, and finds stability and gratification in manual labor. He told me that, in 2012, soon after graduating from college, he was asked to paint a mural for an art opening in Chicago. That month, as a member of a maintenance crew at a local concert arena, he was also staining a fence. He finished the two jobs on the same day, he told me, recalling, “The feeling of satisfaction was exactly the same between when I looked at the finished fence and when I looked at the mural.”
