Vermont Edition hosted a fantastic discussion on Cartooning and Comics in Vermont, with Rachel Lindsay, Stephen Bissette and Robert Waldo Brunelle Jr., who spoke about their careers as cartoonists.
Here’s the description:
It’s long been rumored that if you shake a tree in Vermont, a writer will fall from its branches. Well, they might be accompanied by a cartoonist as they come crashing to the ground.
Vermont has a plethora of talented cartoonists. And the Center for Cartoon Studies is about to celebrate its 10th anniversary. That’s right, a decade of training cartoonists.
So we turn our gaze on those who have taken up this craft. We speak with Rachel Lindsay, Stephen Bissette and Robert Waldo Brunelle, Jr., who discuss why they became cartoonists, how to survive in the business in the digital age and what the cartooning community in Vermont is like.
