Graphic Novelist Lynda Barry will present the 2010 Foundation Lecture at Tyler School of Art on Tuesday, March 23 at 10:30am. Ms. Barry will discuss her book What It Is, which is based on “Writing the Unthinkable”, her tried and true creative method that is playful, powerful and accessible to anyone with an inquisitive wish to write or remember.
Lynda Barry has worked as a painter, cartoonist, writer, illustrator, playwright, editor, commentator, and teacher (and claims to have found them more or less all alike). She is well known for her syndicated strip Ernie Pook’s Comeek, as well as her books One!Hundred!Demons!The!Greatest!of!Marlys! and The Good Times are Killing Me. She also edited the 2008 edition of The Best American Comics.
