Dash Shaw Wins Cullman Center Fellowship

imageThe cartoonist, animator and artist Dash Shaw has won a Cullman Center Fellowship from the New York Public Library's Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers. Shaw will be the David Ferriero Fellow. He will receive a stipend, a private office at the NYPL's Schwarzman Building, and access to the considerable research resources and the expertise of staff. He will apply these things towards his work on a graphic novel concerning a Quaker during the Civil War.

This is the same honor that went to Gary Panter two years ago, who to my memory has been rhapsodic when asked about that experience. Congratulations to Shaw and I look forward to seeing the resulting work.
