Every year, The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS) sends out its annual comics appeal, drawn by a different artist. Past artists have included Alec Longstreth, Liniers, and Tillie Walden (’16). This year, CCS President and Co-founder Michelle Ollie herself has taken on the task.
Michelle takes us through her poignant and heart-warming childhood story of regaining her confidence and learning to read using comics. This is just one tale of the power of comics as a medium for communication. Click here to read the comic.
It is the time of year again where CCS, a non-profit organization, is reaching out for donations to support their work. They have been pushing more and more cartoonists out into the world, and we want them to continue to do so for decades to come.

Page from Berlin, by The Center for Cartoon Studies faculty Jason Lutes
October 19-21, 2017, the Pulp Culture Comic Arts Festival and Symposium will present a series of five panels throughout the day that explore different aspects of nonfiction cartooning. Drawing together cartoonists, writers, and academics, including CCS faculty and alum, the hour-long panels will foster a rich dialog between panelists and audience. Panels will be held in the Fleming Auditorium (Room 101) in the Fleming Museum, just downstairs from the Cartoonist Exhibition Hall.
You can see multiple current and former teachers on different panels. Sophie Yanow, the newest addition to the teaching staff at The Center for Cartoon Studies as well as a student and a fellow there (she’s done it all), recently released her third graphic novel, What Is a Glacier? Jason Lutes, one of many beloved figures at CCS, is working away at Berlin, releasing issue 21 last year. James Kochalka was a teacher, wrote the CCS fight song, and later became the first Vermont Cartoonist Laureate. Marek Bennett, former applied cartooning adviser, continues his work with summer workshops combining comics, music, and education. (more…)
