The Pen is Mightier

February 16, 2007

BFA Illustration and Cartooning Department faculty member Seth Tobocman is using his pen to help in the struggles of some of New Orleans’ needy residents. He has been shuttling back and forth between New York City and New Orleans, working on a campaign to stop the razing of public housing in St. Bernard Parish, which would displace large numbers of residents. In addition to organizing public protests and drawing topic-specific comic strips, Tobocman has been working with St. Bernard residents to design a Mardi Gras float that spotlights the issue.
