SAGE STOSSEL and HILARY PRICE discuss “Framing the Story: Cartooning and Graphic Novels”
Cambridge Forum is pleased to present local cartoonists SAGE STOSSEL and HILARY PRICE as they explore creativity under the pressure of daily deadlines and rigid formal requirements. What impact do external structural demands have on the creative artist? The work of art? Using the parameters of the daily cartoon strip and the graphic novel as models, they ask how do formal rules change and develop as an art form grows, attracting new audiences and taking on new roles in the world of art.
