2007 In Review, Part 1

The end of 2007 is here, so it's time to look back at the progress the CCP has made. Some of the major accomplishments in the last year:

1. Motivating one of my students to start her own webcomic.

2. Hosting the first Comic Making Tournament, which was sponsored by Yale University, New Haven Reads, and several local businesses.

3. Winning a grant from the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven.

4. Reaching out to impoverished youths at the Dixwell-Yale Community Learning Center.

5. Starting the exploration of other educational uses of the project through the CCP Modules, thus laying the groundwork for future research ventures.

6. Inspiring Robert Anke to use the CCP in his classroom.

7. Receiving coverage from several local papers: the Yale Daily News, New Haven Advocate, and the New Haven Register.

8. Celebrating the 1 year anniversary with guest comics posted by various comic creators across the Internet.

9. A workshop at the Toonseum, heralding a return to form by the CCP in its new home town.

10. Keeping the comic site and blog regularly updated!

Overall, a good year. However, I am never one to rest on my laurels. I fully intend to make 2008 even better!
