Creative Lives with Self Made Hero.
Artistic and inventive lives often flourish in extraordinary, difficult circumstances. Andrzej Klimowski and Danusia Schejbal’s collaborative biography, Behind the Curtain, explores their formative years as artists in 1970s Poland. Sydney Padua’s The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage takes us back to the 1830s and an alternate reality in which Ada Lovelace, the world’s first computer programmer, avoids her untimely death to realise Charles Babbage’s plans for the world’s first computer. The three graphic novelists join podcaster and journalist Alex Fitch to discuss their own creative lives and creative process.
