Oh, right. It’s warmth! It has totes been above 0 degrees here for the past two days, which has been positively delightful and has let us all thaw out a bit. Never in my life did I expect to think that 18 degrees was balmy weather heralding the oncoming spring, but I guess that’s Vermont for ya.
You know what else is quintessentially Vermont? Sketches of the CCS students’ visiting artist talks. Here’s the next set:
B. Swardlick will be starting a long graphic novel about the life and times of a man named Frank and all the roles–son, musician, father, lover–he plays throughout it.
Tom Casteel will be continuing work on Low Down, the abovementioned story about a man’s midlife crisis, as well as completing a number of shorter collaborative comics about a guerrilla English Lit class on a subway, meditation, and adoption.
Pat Barrett is continuing work on Petrified Girlfriend (a story about a young New York couple who is forced to come to terms with their faltering relationship when the girlfriend becomes…well…petrified) and contributing to Farmy Acres, a three-person webcomic in which each strip takes place in a different part of the same farm.
Next week is the last set of these visiting artist sketches, you guys! After that, you’ll have met every member of the CCS class of 2011. Then it’s back to regular ol’ artists again. :)
