Alum Spotlight: teaching in higher education

Luke Healy ’14 to present at Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival

September 24, 2017

Thesis to Print: Exploring the journey of creating the graphic novel How To Survive In The North

Recent MFA graduate Luke Healy’s ’14 How To Survive In The North started as a thesis project while he was attending The Center for Cartoon Studies. Based on two related Artic expeditions, both of which were well documented at the time, it adds a contemporary fictional third strand. The expeditions by Vilhjalmur Stefansson were an attempt to prove his theory of ‘the friendly Arctic’, his notion that as long as you knew how to get food and fuel from under the ice, it would be unproblematic to explore the area.

Luke Healy was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. Luke has an MFA in Cartooning from The Center for Cartoon Studies. His comics work has been published in anthologies and has received several awards. His book How to Survive in the North was named one of the best books of 2016 by Publishers Weekly. He once walked from Mexico to Canada!
