Lynda Barry: "Two Questions" & Beyond
"Two Questions" is an expert and highly-regarded
pictorial essay by Lynda Barry about questioning
why and how we create art, and determining
how to break free of creative block
It's definitely a journey that every artistic person
(writers, artists, actors) can relate to!
It's an exercise in fighting the lure to be
commercially successful and ignore the
chaotic unknown of free-form creation!
A most riveting accounting!
You can find the complete essay of "Two Questions" in
the Lynda Barry compilation, "What It Is"
as well as in the excellent anthology compilation series,
"The Best American Comics" (2006 edition,
