Funny Ladies: A Portrait of Women Cartoonists (DVD)
In Funny Ladies, we watch four smart and witty role models — Cathy Guisewite, Nicole Hollander, Lynda Barry and “Brenda Starr’s” Dale Messick — share their creative process. Viewers will find themselves looking at the comics, and the world, in a new way. This film would make an ideal companion to MacArthur Fellow Lynda Barry’s new book Making Comics (2019) — the bestselling, creative curriculum that teaches us how to draw and write our story, especially during this time of remote learning. Barry believes everyone and anyone can be creative and that creativity is vital to processing the world around us.
Two-sided card with cartoonist Nicole Hollander’s comic strips bubbles will be included with each DVD order.
