About the Author
Lynda Barry has worked as a painter, cartoonist, writer, illustrator, playwright, editor, commentator, and teacher and found that they are all very much alike. She is the author of the acclaimed graphic novel One! Hundred! Demons!, the cartoonist behind the long-running Ernie Pook's Comeek, and the author of the creative how-to memoir comic books What It Is and Picture This. She lives in Wisconsin, where she is an assistant professor of art and a Discovery Fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
“Barry isn’t particularly interested in the writer’s craft. She’s more interested in where ideas come from—and her goal is to help people tap into what she considers to be an innate creativity.” —The New York Times
“In Barry’s work, the transcendent power of the imagination awaits.” —Laura Miller, Salon.com (Unforgettable Graphic Novels of 2013)
