The Cartoon Picayune as MFA Thesis

At this point, The Cartoon Picayune is still largely a project of one. I'm excited to be bringing in other contributors for Cartoon Picayune #2, but this thing is mostly still by me, Josh Kramer.

I live in Vermont because I'm a student at the Center for Cartoon Studies, and today I turned in my thesis project, which I have been working hard on all year. A good portion of my thesis was the comics I do for this site and zine. As part of the physical package I turned in, I created an addendum of information about the journalism part. Yes, I might have had more finished comics pages if I had been drawing every day, but then I wouldn't have been able to do this work. Journalism takes time. You know this, dear readers. Some of this will look familiar, but here are those pages. Remember, the audience here is the thesis committee, so the tone may be a little ... loftier than I am usually.

By the way, I've changed the color again now that it's warming up, so come visit the site if you're using a reader.
