Don Seiden's Artobiography is a delightful visual and narrative romp through the landscape of one man's memories. . . . Seiden offers his candid, flawed, oh-so-human self so that as readers we can locate ourselves. . . . This is a book about love, life, and relationships, and about how art can serve as the binding force to hold it all together. --Catherine Hyland Moon, author of Studio Art Therapy
In Artobiography, renowned artist and educator Don Seiden relates his life story through beautifully detailed pen-and-ink drawings and hand-written captions. Using the conventions of the graphic novel, Seiden takes the reader on a decades-spanning rollercoaster ride. Exploring issues of identity, family, career, sex, alcohol, and the search for meaning all fueled by the artistic impulse Artobiography is a fascinating no-holds-barred account of an eclectic artist who embodies the bohemian ideal. --Josh Neufeld, author of A Few Perfect Hours
