Congratulations to Lillie Harris ’21 and Daryl Seitchik ’18 with cartoons in recent issues of The New Yorker! The New Yorker is one of those pinnacles of achievement for a lot of cartoonists, so a lot of hard work goes into getting a comic accepted. Many CCS alum and faculty cartoons have appeared in The New Yorker! The November 20th The New Yorker “Daily Shouts” featured faculty Glynnis Fawkes cartoon “2020 As A Newborn” which reflects on parenting during a pandemic.
If it is time to bring your comics up to the next level, Luke Howard ′13 and Jarad Greene ’17 can help you step up in Cartooning Studio (June 25–29). A 5-day, intensive summer workshop, Jarad and Luke will teach character development, environments, writing, and inking through lectures and in-class exercises.
In a few weeks on November 11, 2017, is Comic Arts Brooklyn. The event is at a new location this year, the Pratt Institute. You can see a few alum there this year.
Sophie Goldstein will be there for the release of her graphic novel House of Women with Fantagraphics. House of Women is a sci-fi story about four women trying to “civilize” the natives of a distant planet. Get it early: They go fast.
