If you happened to be alive and able to read and see pictures in the 1980s, you may have run across a little serial comic in the alternate newspapers called Ernie Pook’s Comeek.
Well, THIS JUST IN: the creator of said comeek, and all kinds of wonderful in the shape of words and pictures and ideas, Lynda Barry, will be the Artist in Residence at UW-Madison during the spring semester of 2012. Check out her latest at the blog: http://thenearsighted monkey.tumblr.com. I am neither a graduate nor an undergrad student, but am tempted to enroll to be able to take the class entitled: “What It Is: Manually Shifting the Image.” Oh, just to have the chance to drive over a couple of times a week to be in such a class!! Maybe she’ll host some shorter workshops during her residency for us non-students.
