Julie just came back from a writing workshop taught by the great Lynda Barry at our local community college. This is a class Ms. Barry does from time to time and she usually charges for admission. But I guess the school footed the bill for her to come so it was free! So Julie got to check that out and it sounded really great. Lynda's latest book, What It Is, is, sort of, the illustrated version of this class.
Anyhow, afterward, Julie sweet-talked a couple of sketches (Marlys! Monkey!) from Ms. Barry for our lil' Romy's bedroom. Awesome! Thanks, Lynda!
