Lynda Barry on drawing as a message

Sometimes you freak out about your drawing ability. But what if you consider your drawing as a message from a part of you you don’t know much about? Some part of you that is still trying to communicate in spite of being hated.

There are so many ways of drawing, styles of drawing, ways of working with a line. How can any of them be wrong? It’s like saying a tree is wrong. Or a grasshopper is wrong. Or a lake is wrong. Or orange and yellow are wrong.
