The Funny Pages

For several months earlier this year, UNH Museum curator Dale Valena perused every issue of The New Hampshire and UNH student magazines, looking for laughs. The results, "Campus Comics: Cartooning at UNH," features the works of 50-some student artists, some of whom are reproduced here. Starting below: "Our Better Side," by Debbie Blood Crowder '78, now a high school art teacher, was published in The New Hampshire in 1976; "The Edge" by Cy D. Tidd, appeared in TNH in 1995; "Just ignore it," by Joseph Kandra '82, now a graphic designer at Kronos, was published in Catalyst in 1979; "Cat Comments," by Elbridge J. Brooks Jr. '49, who lives in Chesterland, Ohio, appeared in TNH in 1948; and "Bibbity Bobbity Boo," by Polly Fowle Crisman '73, now the graphics manager for CPO Science, was published in TNH in 1970. (President John McConnell was the Fairy Godmother, and perhaps Crisman's cartoon did the trick, since curfews for women were lifted later that year.) "Boys, boys!" by Robert Ganley appeared in TNH in 1947, and "Hey! Wake up!" (above) by Matt Talbot '98, now a designer with Brown & Company Design, appeared in TNH in 1997. The exhibit in Dimond Library will run through July 28.
