Video: Garry Trudeau: Creativity in Isolation

From the Beinecke Library at Yale:

"In response to the Beinecke Library's invitation to describe the work he is currently pursuing, Garry Trudeau—cartoonist, writer, and creator of 'Doonesbury'—described the challenges of creating a 'Complete Digital Doonesbury' featuring some 15,000 comic strips in honor of the 50th anniversary of the beloved strip. In the process, Garry’s editor David Stanford identified what he called a “perfect strip” published in 2009. Here, Garry 'deconstructs' this piece, walking us through its creation, frame by frame. Garry shares details of his broader creative practice, thoughts about writing comedy, and the development of his unique and groundbreaking approach to the comic strip format."
