Cowafunda—Laird Donates to CCS

imageThe Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS), a comics-based art school to open in Fall 2005 in River Junction, Vermont, announced a $150,000 gift to the school from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Peter Laird through his Xeric Foundation, an organization best known to comics fans for its twice-annual awards that allow cartoonists to self-publish.

I suppose I could just cut and paste the press release, but instead you should read it here and then poke around the web site proper.

James Sturm, an award-winning cartoonist and active comics art educator, is the Center's founder and prime mover. I believe this is the largest donation the school has received from a comics-related source, and the second big industry name to come on board in a significant financial sense since Jean Schulz.
