I am applying to The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS)’s 2-year M.FA program to study comics, graphic novels, etc. This is a story I submitted as a part of my application. I had to create a story that includes these characters: me, a robot, a fruit, and a snowman. One of us have to speak a foreign (real or imaginary) language. Naturally I picked si5s (written American Sign Language). I’m sure I made several mistakes with si5s- I am still very new to si5s! You can learn more about si5s at: http://www.si5s.org/ And, you can check out CCS’s website at: http://www.cartoonstudies.org/
Don’t worry if you can’t read si5s. I’ve written the story intended for general audience to read.
