NOW ON DISPLAY: From Point A to Point B: Snippets of Barbara Schulz’s Hitchhiker Vinegarettes In Progress
During her 2012 sabbatical at the Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee, Belgium, Comic Arts professor Barbara Schulz created Hitchhiker Vinegarettes. It is a sequence of comic vignettes, written by Deb Balzer, described as follows in the book’s colophon:
Hitchhiker Vinegarettes is a series of childhood memory sketches expressed through the graphic art form. These comic art shorts are a play on the literal vignette and emulsified vinaigrette creating poetic visual stories infused with some damn sour, often absurd and memorable moments.
Professor Schulz has generously shared with the Library her in-progress sketches and inks from various points in the production of the book. These along with a copy of the finished book from the Library’s Artists Books Collection are now on display through the end of the semester in the main reading room. Whether you’re deeply interested in the innermost workings of how a comic book is made, or you just need a bit of rest and relaxation before the beginning of the end of the school year, come by the Library to check out From Point A to Point B today!
