I GOT MY SCHOLARSHIP!
When I got the call, about two weeks ago, at first I thought:
"They're calling to tell me I'm not allowed in. They made a mistake, and my application has been rejected."
Today (March 1) is the official announcement date!
I'm going to cartoon school! With free money!
Thank you to Hope, for my beautiful letter of recommendation, and to all my amazing comic-making pals, for inspiring and encouraging me to do this stuff, and to all my friends and admirers and critics, who've helped and jazzed me about making comics. Thank you to the Diamond Scholarship Committee, and The Center for Cartoon Studies!
That bag will sure buy a lot of cookies. Congratulations!
As IF you wouldn't get in.

This comes as NO SURPRISE to me!! I mean, of course they'd want you there! And of course you're good enough for them to foot the bill! Your stuff rocks so incredibly hard, and soon it's gonna be bathed in maple syrup and orange-colored leaves and mountains and hippies. YAY!!!

I'm a little late to this party, but congratulations, Lucy! Congrats on your book, too....I love the combination of art and photography. You go girl.
Wow! Really? Crazy! It's like I'm there, already!
I'm working in Chicago this summer, but I have to come out to VT to find an apartment/place to live in June, and then I won't totally move until July. I stayed in the Coolidge when I came to visit, and have never been more frightened of a hotel in my life-- and I've stayed at the hotel where "The Shining" was filmed! So that place is OUT.
How do I get to the message board? I'd LOVE to join it, but in terms of school info, CCS has only sent me a letter of congrats and a copy of "In the Shadows of No Towers." Oh, and a couple pamphlets on the exciting things to do in Vermont and New Hampshire, which frightened me a little. God love those cartoonist types!
Looking forward to seeing/meeting you. And to an honest bagel place, esp. where I can watch someone offer to punch themselves for monies. There really aren't any good bagel places in Chicago...
kewl. I've emailed James, so I might be on, soon.
And yeah, I'd love to check out the red house!
And I missed out on APE this year, sadly, because I am poooor, and still have to graduate from college in three weeks. Bummer. I would have really liked to meet you guys, and plus, I have a book to sell! I hope it was fun, though. Lotsa friends of mine went, making me buuuurn with jealousy. I can't wait to hear all about it.
Coming to MoCCA? I'll be there, likely, horning in on whoever's table will let me plant a few books.
I'm sure the things to do in Vermont are numerous and life-alteringly-exciting.
