Her art style is amazing, simple and cartoonish (except when it’s precise and detailed), and just from her art style and storytelling alone, I realized I’ll read her on This is a graphic novel, likewise a memoir, about Ellen Forney’s life before she was diagnosed, being diagnosed, not quite accepting that diagnosis, and then slowly coming to grips with it and with the medication. A comic book artist diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a mental condition that sends her moods shooting from one end of the spectrum – soaring higher than high with happiness and manic energy – to the other – skull-crushing depression and immobility – with unerring suddenness, Forney has created an honest and engaging comic book of her experience living with the illness in Marbles.

marbles: mania, depression, michelangelo, and me pdf

No Comments

Free download or read online Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me pdf (ePUB) book. Forney ruminates on the intersection of mental illness and creative people, making lists of artists who were mentally ill and trying to figure out the link between creative thought and bipolar symptoms. Marbles is a detailed story about her life with bi-polar disorder, with plenty of focus on her relationship with her psychiatrist and meds... maybe too much, I 'd say in the last 1/3, when I got a little restless and bored with the level of detail in the same way I had with the somewhat obsessively detailed self-analysis in Are You My Mother? Darkly funny and intensely personal, Forney’s memoir provides a visceral glimpse into the effects of a mood disorder on an artist’s work, as she shares her own story through bold black-and-white images and evocative prose. her psychiatrist seems absolutely fabulous. But right now, the science is in its infancy. Shortly before her thirtieth birthday, Forney was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
