A2Inkubate Keynote with Lucy Knisley

A cartoon drawing of a person with shoulder length blond hair wearing glasses and smiling slightly. The cartoon person has a very pleasant face.
Lucy Knisley, the creator behind celebrated comics memoirs Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, Something New: Tales from a Makeshift Bride, and the recently-released Kid Gloves: Nine Months of Careful Chaos shares her experiences navigating her comics career. From making art that recreates the sensory experiences of cooking and eating, to capturing and evoking the magic of travel, to diving deep into those life experiences that can sometimes slip through our fingers, Lucy will share her approach to the comics memoir.
