Picture ThisBook - 2010
The creative-drawing companion to the acclaimed and bestselling What It Is
Lynda Barry single-handedly created a literary genre all her own, the graphic memoir/how-to, otherwise known as the bestselling, the acclaimed, but most important, the adored and the inspirational What It Is . The R. R. Donnelley and Eisner Award-winning book posed, explored, and answered the question: "Do you wish you could write?" Now with Picture This , Barry asks: "Do you wish you could draw?" It features the return of Barry's most beloved character, Marlys, and introduces a new one, the Near-sighted Monkey. Like What It Is , Picture This is an inspirational, take-home extension of Barry's traveling, continually sold-out, and sought-after workshop, "Writing the Unthinkable."
