Then, darling Jeff Fisher posted this on FB, via Brain Pickings (I LOVE that blog—so much goodness there!).
"Beloved cartoonist Lynda Barry is teaching a university-level course on doodling and neuroscience that you can audit remotely for free. She’s posting the weekly assignments on her Tumblr – this is the first one."
