Drawing Inspiration: 'Vermont Edition' Gets Graphic With Cartoonists
A special Vermont Edition collects interviews with cartoonists and graphic novel creators, showcasing local work in the unique art form that presents novel-length stories in a comic strip format. It's a combination of words and images that doesn't shy away from difficult subjects: these Vermont cartoonists tackle mental health, crumbling marriages, world wars and the current political climate.
Included in the show are:
- Vermont cartoonist Rachel Lindsay shares her story of living with bipolar disorder in the graphic novel RX.
- Professor and cartoonist Jason Lutes discusses the 22-year, 500-page historical fiction project Berlin.
- Cartoonist Alison Bechdel walks Jane Lindholm through an exhibition of her work at UVM's Fleming Museum.
- Center For Cartoon Studies co-founder James Sturm talks about his graphic novel Off Season, about an unraveling marriage set against the politics of the 2016 presidential election.
