The idiosyncratic curriculum from the Professor of Interdisciplinary Creativity will teach you how to draw and write your story
Making Comics is the follow-up to Barry's bestselling Syllabus, and this time she shares all her comics-making exercises. In a new hand-drawn syllabus detailing her creative curriculum, Barry has students drawing themselves as monsters and superheroes, convincing students who think they can't draw that they can, and, most important, encouraging them to understand that a daily journal can be anything so long as it is hand drawn.
Barry teaches all students and believes everyone and anyone can be creative. At the core of Making Comics is her certainty that creativity is vital to processing the world around us.
|Review Quote*||"PRAISE FOR LYNDA BARRY Barry''s recent ‘activity books' which weave dense, brightly colored collage, narrative comics, and expressionistic drawing into philosophies of memory, pedagogy, and storytelling-are groundbreaking."-Hillary Chute, Artforum Lynda Barry [is] one of the greatest visual artists of our time." -Maria Popova, Brain Pickings|
