When alumnus Rich Watson (BFA 1994 Illustration) decided to pack up his New York City apartment and move west to Columbus, Ohio, he documented the relocation in an online comic strip, City Mouse Goes West. Now settled, the strip continues as a way for Watson to express his experience adjusting to his new home. The weekly Web comic is a text-driven look at events in Watson’s life—including his response to political events and dealings with local public transportation—along with journal-like entries below the panel.
