CCS Part of Creative Economy Trend

imageThe wave of good press continues for the Center for Cartoon Studies' inaugural school year, approaching this Fall, in this regional article. According to statements made by founder, public point man and well-regarded cartoonist James Sturm, the Center has counted on press coverage like the article in question as a way of getting the word out because of limited funds to advertise. This latest article dives right into the secondary topic of choice for most of them, the school's role as one of a number of "creative economy" businesses transforming the downtown of White River Junction, Vermont. We also find out that Sturm's first choice for a location was Minnesota, which no doubt would have led to a lot of jokes about drawing turtles and pirates.
