One of the most successful alternative American cartoonists, Lynda Barry has blazed many trails over her 30 year career. Best known for her Ernie Pook's Comeek about family life from the perspective of pre-teen girls; Freddie, Arna and Marlys, the syndicated strip ran for two decades in non-mainstream weeklies. Barry is also a painter, writer, illustrator, playwright, editor, commentator and teacher.
Lynda's talk What 'It' Is: How are our Hands, Images and Insight Connected? explores the role images play in day-to-day life, focusing on the relationship between the hand, the brain, and spontaneous images, both written and visual.
