I went down to the Center for Cartoon Studies yesterday to give a guest lecture to the freshman class. They seemed like a good bunch of kids (some aren’t kids of course.) They were working on a cover design project (largely excellent work–I was very impressed) so I talked a little bit about how we make the choices we make at D+Q and then I did crits on the work they had hanging on the walls. Unlike previous visits, there were no tears. BUT the main reason for my trip was to take a look at a project that CCS director and D+Q cartoonist James Sturm is currently working on.
