CCS Donates Scholarship to Vermont Department of Libraries

May 2, 2014

For the sixth year in a row, The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS) has donated a full scholarship to the Vermont Department of Libraries so a Vermont teen can attend the Create Comics summer workshop. 

Create Comics is a ‘boot camp’ for cartoonists. The 5-day workshop packs in the essentials for producing your own comics. Through lectures, exercises, and group projects, students learn about story structure, page composition, pacing, materials and techniques, character design, drawing, environmental drawing, and production. Students collaborate on a comic anthology that they self-publish during the workshop. Create Comics is for both beginner and advanced students age 16 and over.

Any Vermont student age 16 or older is eligible. This year the workshop will take place in White River Junction, Vermont, July 7-11, 2014. This full scholarship, includes the workshop, supplies, light breakfast, full lunch and evening student activities. Vermonters interested in the scholarship should apply through the local school or public library.

Leo Geo and the Cosmic Crisis Book Releases

November 5, 2013

Leo Geo and the Cosmic Crisis by Jon Chad
Intrepid explorer Leo Geo is working in his lab at the Fizzmont institute when he learns that a comet is on a collision course with his brother Matt Data’s space station. Without a moment to lose, he grabs his trusty computer, leaps into a rocket, and launches into space. Astronomer Matt Data is working in his lab at the space station when he learns that his brother Leo Geo’s computer is about to suffer a malfunction and turn evil. Determined to save his brother, Leo, Matt leaps into a space ship with his trusty sidekick, Maff, the smartest dog in the galaxy.

Matt and Leo are in for a fantastic adventure filled with space facts in his clever flip-over comic that incorporates an unusual look-and-find component: background characters from one side of the book find themselves pulled through space and time to appear on the other side. See if you can follow their stories from beginning to end!
