The Center for Cartoon Studies Archive
From the comic strip to the comic book to the graphic novel, The Center for Cartoon Archive includes all kinds of original cartoon art. Whether its work by Alison Bechdel, Jamie Hernandez, Chris Ware, Harry Lucey, Richard Thompson, Will Eisner, or Ernie Bushmiller, the collection is a vital part of CCS’s curriculum, regularly brought into the classroom and exhibited to inspire the next generation of cartoonists. If you are interested in donating original art we would encourage that conversation. Inquiries can be made to email@example.com. The Center for Cartoon Studies is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization.

CCS: READY FOR OUR CLOSE UP
So two filmmakers spent several years following students through the intense experience that is The Center for Cartoon Studies. The movie’s now on the festival circuit and you can see the trailer and request a screening at their homepage. The documentary also features commentary from luminaries like Scott McCloud, Lynda Barry, and Chris Ware. The movie’s Facebook page currently has a great outtake featuring the legendary Kim Deitch.
