So, this is the famous White River Junction…

After hearing so much about the Center for Cartoon Studies, I finally got to their week-long Cartooning Studio this summer! Here are a couple paintings I did between classes: 1. View from a parking lot 2. An ill-advised bike ride (detailed comic to follow!) 3. View from the Telegraph Studio, where I spent much time […]
