Barely Finished: "Picture This" by Lynda Barry

Barely Finished: Picture This by Lynda Barry, 2010, 9781897299647.

Not my kind of comic book. Barry's thoughts and drawings about drawing and art peppered with family memories. At least I think those were family memories; she might have been using characters.

In summary, Barry writes and draws about: What is art? Why do people stop drawing after childhood? How does mood and feeling influence an artist's work as the work is being done? Is my (Barry's) art any good and how is it judged to be good or not? As a child she was ridiculed for drawing as a child.

1. I didn't care.
