Want to learn how to make comics for free? Apply for the Diamond in the Rough Scholarship:
Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc. is proud to partner with The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS) to award an aspiring cartoonist a full one-year tuition scholarship at The Center for Cartoon Studies beginning in fall 2007.
That’s a $14,500 value. Applications are due February 1, 2007, with the winner announced March 1 at the CCS website. The CCS is located in Vermont and directed by James Sturm.
I love that, aside from the typical application and essay, the applicant also has to “Produce a minimum two page comic story starring yourself, a snowman, a robot, and a piece of fruit.” It’s unsurprising but, in my opinion, missing the point to require that every applicant provide their comic retailer’s Diamond account number, though.
