Lynda Barry's previous book, the Eisner Award-winning What It Is, explored the question "Do you think you can write"? Now with Picture This, Barry asks "Why do we stop drawing?" and "Why do we start?" It features the return of Barry's most beloved character, Marlys, and introduces a new one, the Nearsighted Monkey. Picture This is an inspirational, take home extension of Barry's traveling, continually sold out, and sought after workshop, "Writing The Unthinkable."
