It’s amazing how you can hear something and then hear it again – for real. I’m co-teaching (with Emily Hoisington) an online Liberal Arts course at MCAD, Visual Journals: A Space of Possibility, and recommended to one of my comic art students Junot Díaz’s discussion of world-building. Of course, after I located his remarks in the video below, I let the lecture play out while I continued grading. And, just, he’s so cool! 13:48, then audience questions from 22:22 onward, but especially 38:39.
