As an instructor at The Center for Cartoon Studies since its founding in 2005, long-time cartoonist/writer/editor/publisher Stephen R. Bissette has been privileged to witness (and, at times, participate in) the creative process of various cartoonists as they created work that focused on their own personal health issues and histories. Bissette offers an illustrated overview of the path, perils, and potential inherent in the creation of such intensely intimate and introspective works.

Cynthia Clark Harvey is a writer/artist living in Phoenix, AZ, USA. Reading comics has been a life-long pleasure for Cynthia; creating comics is a more recent pursuit. Cynthia’s other job is framing art.
Cynthia Clark Harvey: Drawn To You, A Graphic Panegyric Two brilliant and beautiful daughters – life for the Harveys seems, for the most part, charmed, until the older, Erica, begins, at the age of 14, to exhibit signs of serious mental illness. The family is thrown into disruption and desperation as they seek care for their girl. When Erica dies a wholly preventable death in a therapeutic program, the family is rocked to its core. Excerpts from a graphic memoir-in-process present one mother’s story, addressed to her daughter, of the Firstborn’s conception, birth, life, death, and the family’s journey without her.
