CCS News & Graduation Pix
Some week-after-graduation Center for Cartoon Studies news, links and pix:
will be at MoCCA
this year once again (I won't; my convention days/daze be over). Lots of amazing comics this year from both classes, and a great chance to meet a number of CCS
's best, brightest and most mobile. The CCS
table will be B5, a prime location near the front door of the first room.* CCS graduation pix are popping up online at last!
The one heading this blog post was clicked by Joe Lambert
, catching a sweet view of the CCS
graduating class and faculty pose (that's me in the way back, to the right, third cat with the hat). For better shots of yours truly in a monkey suit and, far more important, shots of the event, Mutts
creator and graduation keynote speaker Patrick McDonnell
, and much more, you'll be relieved to knowJoe just posted some great graduation photos here, along with the two pages he and James Sturm created as the cover to the first CCS graduation 'facebook,'and Joe posted more pix here. Enjoy!* The local newspaper coverage was sweet.Valley News staff writer Sonia Scherr's coverage is here, offering accurate assessments of the speeches offered by Patrick McDonnell and senior Ross Wood Studlar, for those interested.
* My old Brattleboro amigo, Rutland Herald
reporter, and Trees & Hills Comic Group
co-founder Daniel Barlow
popped up at the graduation, too, and Dan, Cat
and I enjoyed a chat over some beer after the Saturday festivities were over.Here's Dan's excellent article in The Rutland Herald on the graduation (which sports one bit of misinformation: I met James Sturm looooong before the Bennington College summit; that is, however, where James and I first seriously discussed my teaching at CCS), andyou might want to check out The Rutland Herald's opinion column on the CCS graduation, too.
* The online comics interview site Indie Spinner Rack
has posted their second CCS
program, the interview with James Sturm, and it's a great one -- check it out, here!(And, on the odd chance you missed prior posts, here's the link to my interview with Indie Spinner Rack.)
That's what I've got this morning.
Have a great Wednesday, one and all...
