Journalistic Comix Senior Thesis
For my thesis, I’ve created non-fiction comics about locals of the Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire. Using traditional journalistic reporting skills, I interviewed sources and conducted research in order to create factually supported narratives in comics form. Cartoon Picayune #1 is the first issue of ongoing comics journalism anthology. In it I featured the first part of a story about of a local high school ski jumping team, as well as a comic about a man who grows apples for his own brand of hard apple cider. I’ve also included in this thesis the second half of the ski jumping story (of which two pages are installed here) and another small story on local cheesemakers.
