I have been on a sort of hiatus partly from the busyness of life, partly from laziness, and partly from lack of confidence. But I have good news, everyone! Over the past year or so, I've been struggling to find my path since graduating college and I'm glad to announce my next move. Last year, I started reading James Kochalka's American Elf, a hilarious and touching daily diary comic by a great cartoonist, who also teaches at this school called The Center for Cartoon Studies. So as I would read his strips about teaching at the school, I would think, "There is a school for making comics? Who the heck kind of person goes to a cartooning school?" And so I did my research, and got this crazy feeling that this school was perfect for me. I spent last summer laboriously working on my portfolio and my application, cartooning with a fervor I had never experience before. I turned in my application packet back in September, and I am happy/proud/relieved to say that I will be matriculating with the CCS class of 2012!
So, I wanted to share the 6 page comic I made for part of my application. The only guidelines were to create a minicomic of at least 2 pages including a robot, yourself, a snowman, and a piece of fruit (characters may be combined). Here you go:
Hope you guys enjoyed it and forgive me for the severe lack of Cuddleboobs. Let me know if you want a hard copy, and I'll print one out specially for you. Also, feel free to check out the porfolio I managed to put together for my application: http://portfolio.ursamancer.com Come visit me in Vermont!

It's a digital antenna, okay?! Let's face it, without the rabbit ears, I was worried that it wouldn't look like a TV. Also I was worried that you people would think it was another character. Well, maybe it is. Let's all welcome TV to the Cuddleboobs family.
My thoughts usually end up very far from where I was going.

I'm in LA, TRICK!
In the Bay Area, they changed that line from "I'm in Miami, Trick!" to "I'm in the bay, Trick!" Until I came down here, I could never understand what he was saying until I heard them sing it here, differently. Every time he sang that line, I thought he was saying "I'm in the MATRIX!"
Which would be a completely different experience.
