Spiraling: Writing the Unthinkable
Lynda Barry had us draw spirals today.
I got to do a workshop with her in her Image Lab at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, where she is a (jolly good) fellow. It was a writing workshop, but we drew a little. We spiraled.
When we were getting ready to write, or when we were listening to someone else read, we drew spirals.
We were supposed to draw it as tight and close as we could without having the lines touch. I got too big on this one and it turned into a labyrinth.
Sometimes I closed my eyes and drew.
Here’s more of the labyrinth.
Eyes closed for a bit.
I like how these pics look a little spooky. I went to scary places today, and I even wrote a ghost story.
