CCA Comics students draw stories from the eviction epidemic. A 48 Hills exclusive series.
ART LOOKS The Engage: Comics class at the California College of the Arts is comprised of a diverse collection of students from various majors passionate about making comics that engage the world around them.
This year, they teamed with 48Hills.org and housing activists from the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project and the Housing Rights Committee to create comics from first person accounts of San Francisco’s housing crisis.
The students met with and interviewed people who are struggling or have struggled to remain in their homes, and then turned these stories into compelling visual narratives. Justin Hall was the professor of the Engage: Comics class, and Peter Glanting was the Teaching Assistant.
The following comic is by CCA student Autumn Austin. Click on each image to enlarge! (You might have to click twice). See the whole series here.
Autumn Austin currently lives in San Francisco where she is an Interior Design major at California College of the Art. Her life involves avid tea drinking, biking, enthusiastic traveling and a continuum of trying new things, which is the enjoyable inspiration that leads to the production of her art and design.
