The Center for Cartoon Studies Begins Its Second Decade with a Splash!!


The 2016-2017 CCS Fellow is Argentine cartoonist Liniers.

Ricardo Liniers Siri is best known as the creator of the popular Latin American comic strip Macanudo. American audiences have been introduced to Liniers through his New Yorker covers and children’s books that include The Big Wet Balloon and Written and Drawn by Henrietta. Liniers remarks, “It´s an amazing adventure to get to go to Vermont, meet all kinds of cartoonists and draw till I drop. Well…my kind of adventure!”


Sophie Yanow joins CCS’s faculty. 

Sophie Yanow was the 2014-15 CCS Fellow. “I’m happy to continue to be a part of the CCS community, and excited to be given a role where I will do my best to encourage and facilitate knowledge sharing and artistic growth among the ever amazing CCS students,” says Yanow.

CCS’s first Applied Cartooning Fellow is Reverend Kurt Shaffert. 

Rev. Shaffert has served as a chaplain with the VA Connecticut Healthcare System since 2008 and as a lecturer in pastoral care at the Yale Divinity School since 2007.  He presented at the recent Graphic Medicine Conference on Process Cartooning (Graphic Narrative Medicine) as a Clinical Intervention.
