Triggering Childhood Memory
Opening pages for a story in her signature work One! Hundred! Demons! demonstrate Lynda Barry's innovative approach and exuberant insight as she resurrects and transforms her childhood observations on smell. Barry invented the term "autobiofictionalography" to describe the hybrid nature of her multilayered, multimedia approach that incorporates collage and drawing in ink and watercolor. Creator of long-running comics and award-winning graphic novels, she teaches aspiring cartoonists to write and draw at the University of Wisconsin.
