Seth Scriver's work is filled with lumpy men and women plucked from rural Canada—thick mustaches, plaid shirts, and winter caps exchanging non sequiturs and one-liners. Airbrushed Garfields, packs of wild dogs, flocks of birds, and more packs of wild dogs race through Scriver's paintings and drawings. Part of a crew of Canadian doodlers—like-minded folks such as Marc Bell (Hot Potatoe, The Stacks), Peter Thompson (Lucky Ello), Amy Lockhart (Amethyst Tinlegs), and Keith Jones (Bacter-Area)—Scriver exemplifies a modern cartoon-painting aesthetic, a type of fantasy world created through a stream-of-consciousness drawing style. The drawings in Stooge Pile present a palpable view of a hectic world in which cartoon bears and hunters engage in slapstick adventures.
