Lynda Barry =]
Lynda Barry was at our very own Tyler School of Art on March 23, 2010. She is a hilarious person! She was crazy and told some pretty hilarious jokes. Born in Wisconsin, Lynda Barry grew up always drawing. Soon she began to write two books but then make a decision that it would be easier to draw them instead! Barry used her childhood as inspiration for her comics and art. She talked of a story where she once thought her mother was monster! She also talked about some pretty interested psychological aspects of children. She mentioned that children are in a different state of mind when they play. She also told us that art needs to be nurtured, which was a different way of thinking about art. I enjoyed having her read her book to us because it was personal and exciting to hear her tone of voice. All in all it was a great lecture that I think everyone enjoyed.
