    I liked Knisley s Relish best I also have read French MilK and her other memoirs and travelogues and I am attracted to her artistic style Sort of seduced by the color and flair This book is a collection of early black and white stuff from when she was living in Chicago, when it was too cold for her Hey, I am in Chicago and like it and she drew to the accompanying sound of the radiator Her work is fresh and attractive at this point, even if rough sometimes Of course she gets better at ev I liked Knisley s Relish best I also have read French MilK and her other memoirs and travelogues and I am attracted to her artistic style Sort of seduced by the color and flair This book is a collection of early black and white stuff from when she was living in Chicago, when it was too cold for her Hey, I am in Chicago and like it and she drew to the accompanying sound of the radiator Her work is fresh and attractive at this point, even if rough sometimes Of course she gets better at everything as she goes on, but this is good to see I like the memoir stuff better than the fiction here, which is maybe why she mostly has done memoir since This is journaling, a sketchbook, attempts to try stuff, and you can see the promise in it Fun

    Warning, there is full frontal male nudity Good for you, Knisley A graphic novel memoir from Knisley s days as an art student The book is a collection of non fiction, creative non fiction, and fiction short stories, some deeply personal, others just goofing around as she experiments with art and storytelling styles Favorite part for me was to watch her seriously fangirl out when she met her hero, Lynda Barry, author of One Hundred Demons As a reader, picking up and reading Knisley s wor Warning, there is full frontal male nudity Good for you, Knisley A graphic novel memoir from Knisley s days as an art student The book is a collection of non fiction, creative non fiction, and fiction short stories, some deeply personal, others just goofing around as she experiments with art and storytelling styles Favorite part for me was to watch her seriously fangirl out when she met her hero, Lynda Barry, author of One Hundred Demons As a reader, picking up and reading Knisley s works in opposite chronological order actually worked out for me as a way to know where she would end up, both professionally and personally, and be able to see from a big picture perspective how her art and life developed

    These are so crazy to read because she is like 22 or something I am so jealous of people whose work ethic and technical proficiency so cosmically outstrip my own and it is especially painful when you see that they were that good and hardworking even back then, when you yourself could not even sit upright at a table Sheesh I still sort of rudely am looking forward to Lucy at 50 because I want her access to self analysis to begin to exceed her lavish capacity for self reporting, but these are These are so crazy to read because she is like 22 or something I am so jealous of people whose work ethic and technical proficiency so cosmically outstrip my own and it is especially painful when you see that they were that good and hardworking even back then, when you yourself could not even sit upright at a table Sheesh I still sort of rudely am looking forward to Lucy at 50 because I want her access to self analysis to begin to exceed her lavish capacity for self reporting, but these are fun to read and she is enormously skilled and driven

    I really love Lucy Knisley s illustrations, and for the most part I really enjoyed this book I only give 3 stars due to the haphazard nature in which these comic were put together I know that s supposed to be the whole sketchbook feel, but I think the comics could have been arrangedcohesively Also, 5 stars for all autobiographical comics, and the rest eh Still recommend checking it out And I would also like to give it a re read I repeat, her illustrations are totally awesome.

    A friend recently read Lucy Knisley s newest books Something New and Kid Gloves , and while I d never heard of her, I liked what I could see of the art from those books, so I decided to see what my local library had Turns out they re a very enthusiastic Knisley supporter, so I even found this self published book, which is where I m starting with Lucy Parts of it seem to be written simultaneously with French Milk, which was vaguely confusing.In any case, this book is a straight journal comic f A friend recently read Lucy Knisley s newest books Something New and Kid Gloves , and while I d never heard of her, I liked what I could see of the art from those books, so I decided to see what my local library had Turns out they re a very enthusiastic Knisley supporter, so I even found this self published book, which is where I m starting with Lucy Parts of it seem to be written simultaneously with French Milk, which was vaguely confusing.In any case, this book is a straight journal comic for the most part, with some fictional graphic stories thrown in I really enjoyed the Bookshop story, about a woman who secretly gives books away, as well as her real life stories of working at a cheese shop one summer The journal comics themselves were a combination of nostalgic feels Knisley and I are of an age and just random thoughts and fears as a young 20 something same, Lucy, same.The art itself was usually pretty neat and clear, though sometimes the panels were really small at one point she has a 24 panel page which was far too tiny for me , though not fully in Knisley s later style There are some NSFW pages All in all, an interesting book, but probably not a good starting point to Knisley s work

    It is amazing to me that Lucy Knisley had 2 published books before she was out of grad school GoalsthatpassedmebyRadiator Days is an eclectic collection of stories and art that Knisley created in her last year of college and the early parts of grad school She explores the anxiety and hopefulness of that time in her life.There are pages of studies of faces and characters There s a story about the shopgirl at an indie book store in its last days There are glimpses of the author s time working It is amazing to me that Lucy Knisley had 2 published books before she was out of grad school GoalsthatpassedmebyRadiator Days is an eclectic collection of stories and art that Knisley created in her last year of college and the early parts of grad school She explores the anxiety and hopefulness of that time in her life.There are pages of studies of faces and characters There s a story about the shopgirl at an indie book store in its last days There are glimpses of the author s time working as a cheese monger I enjoyed it, as I enjoy most all of Lucy Knisley s work

    Very obviously a collection of college sketches and shorts, but since I 1 can t get enough of Knisley especially her fACIAL EXPRESSIONS and 2 made a bunch of comix in college that were true garbage, I loved this collection esp the beautiful stuff about sea animals and what I could identify as early concepts for French Milk and Relish.


  8. Mitchell Mitchell says:

    A bit rougher earlier work But still an enjoyable read Not sure it s a great starting point though I think it helps to care about the artist and her life and her family The embedded story of the friend with the book store closing doing anonymous random book gifts was my favorite part The art is definitely less polished And the sex a bitopen And perhaps a bit less reflective.


  9. Margo Hill Margo Hill says:

    A strong compilation of Knisley s early work Having only read the author s graphic memoirs, it was surprising to see fiction based work along with her autobiographical panels Even with this early work, the author s voice that we see today is clearly evident.
