The Center for Cartoon Studies 2017 Appeal
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.
You can donate here.
