I have already previously read Blankets, so this time I am viewing it with a different eye. The first time through you are taking in mostly the story, but also the art. This time around, I am taking in mostly the art. One thing I neglected to notice my first run through was that in the beginning of the story, Craig has almost no definition when he is drawn. He is very cartoony, and often lacking features like a mouth. He is poorly drawn, where as near the end he looks like a full detailed character just like every other character. I think this is probably intentional, to show how he grew throughout the story.
