Lynda Barry singlehandedly created a literary genre all her own, the graphic-memoir- how-to, otherwise known as the bestselling, the acclaimed, but most importantly, the adored and the inspirational WHAT IT IS. The R.R. Donelley and Eisner Award-winning book posed, explored and answered the question ôDo you think you can writeö? Now with PICTURE THIS, Barry asks ôWhy do we stop drawing?ö and ôWhy do we start?ö It features the return of BarryÆs most beloved character Marlys, and introduces a new one, the NearsightedMonkey. Like WHAT IT IS, PICTURE THIS is an inspirational, take home extension of BarryÆs travelling, continually sold out, and sought after workshop, Writing The Unthinkable.
