During the COVID-19 quarantine, we’ve offered a multitude of things to read, watch and do to keep the SVA community inspired, occupied, safe, sane and creative. We’ve proposed tips on working or learning from home, delivered artistic responses to the coronavirus, ideas on where to safely social distance outside, advice for staying emotionally healthy, recommendations for movies and TV shows to watch, cookbooks to try out, books to read to your children, and more (all of it is accessible here).
As self-isolation continues, so do our recommendations. Below is the latest—a roundup of recent graphic novels, cartoons and comics by SVA alumni and faculty. Happy reading, and stay safe and healthy!
