Founder of Center for Cartoon Studies interviewed

James Sturm, founder of the Center for Cartoon Studies was interviewed by the Village Voice regarding the goals and successes of the school.

Generations of cartoonists are self-taught. Why found the Center?
I wanted to teach and create a cartooning program that was more reflective of comics as an art form and not just a commercial art. From The Iowa Writers’ Workshop to the NYU Film School to Yale’s Painting department so many of our country’s finest artists have attended schools.

A while back, I posted a link to an artist’s visit to the school’s open house and he posted his story and pictures.
