Barry's doodles, drawn during her interview with Neal Conan.

Lynda Barry

Cartoonist and author Lynda Barry believes drawing can solve a lot of problems: writer's block, anxiety, grief. And it even may be the key to giving a good interview. If you listened really closely to last week's show, you could actually hear the sound of her sketching. That's right, she even draws when she's being interviewed.
She was kind enough to scan her doodles, which in this case were drawn on a page was out of her journal. She says she likes the way drawing looks on top of writing. It looks pretty cool indeed.
