In a surprise email I got the other day, it looks like Paul Hornschemeier is to receive a Graphic Novel Residency honor. A new venture created by the Thurber House & the Columbus Museum of Art. While Paul stays in here in town, he will be researching and creating new work on site in the boyhood home of James Thurber. Wow. They’re scheduling a series of events through late March and early April including workshops, and a talk at the museum with Paul. Below is a provided list of events from the Thurber House. A sincere congrats to Paul. It’s been a thrill watching his career. Looking forward to the next book.
