Zippily animated-annotated bit where Lynda Barry talks about how & why people think they can’t draw (and the trouble with people thinking they can draw).
And that’s all she wrote! We end the month with this little weirdo!
I’ve been starting with pencils on all of these but I didn’t have a pencil handy, so I was just like “WE’LL DO IT LIVE!” and started scribbling with this new pen I got the other day.
It’s not a very direct reflection of the keyword “wild” but it’s something that came into my head and that I liked.
I was using a technique I learned (kinda) from Lynda Barry, where when you don’t know what to draw, you just start drawing, very slowly, something that is a known quantity, like panel borders. That gives you a chance to be there, on the page, drawing, and it’s much more likely that things to draw will occur to you when you’re already drawing.
Movement is key.
I didn’t have any pens handy but a Sharpie writing pen…
