FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
White River Junction, Vermont – The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS) announces the second year of The Cornish CCS Fellowship Residency. This year, the month-long residency will be held during the stunning fall season and will include a $3000 stipend. The deadline to apply is August 15, 2017.
Located in Cornish, NH, The Cornish CCS Residency is designed to create a focused and inspiring environment for cartoonists to create exceptional work. Cornish is located 16 miles from The Center for Cartoon Studies (VT), in beautiful rural New Hampshire.
This residency is made possible by former CCS board member, cartoonist Harry Bliss, whose work regularly appears in The New Yorker. “I want to attract the best cartoonists working today and create a residency that is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for storytellers who are pushing the boundaries of the medium,” Bliss said.
Last year’s fellow was Nick Drnaso who worked on a follow up to his critically acclaimed graphic novel Beverly.
“The scenic beauty and significance of the location are almost too much to handle, but now that I’m back to my normal life, I have so much affection for the place and the people I met, and am so grateful to them all for the opportunity. I’m looking forward to seeing the residency continue and to see who else is chosen and what they do with their time there. I have no doubt that the Cornish residency will become an institution in the comics community” -Nick Drnaso
