Twin Cities comics artists

The Twin Cities refers to the major riverside metropolitan areas of Minneapolis, Saint Paul and surrounding townships in Ramsey and Hennepin counties. In recent years, the Twin Cities has become home to a burgeoning comics scene, in the top ten for number of resident comics artists in the United States.[1][2] The location of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design - one of the nation's first and only schools which offers both bachelor's and master's degrees in comic books (e.g.; 'BFA: Comic Art') - is likely a contributing factor. (See: MCAD) However, the global success of popular cartoonists like Minneapolis-born Charles M. Schulz must have paved the way.

The Twin Cities is home to a notable outdoor sculpture project, featuring the characters from Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts comic strip. Throughout Minneapolis and Saint Paul, one can find artistic variations of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Woodstock and others. The first such project was called Charlie Brown Around Town, featuring large three-dimensional copies of the character Charlie Brown in a joyful pose, and painted by various residents of the Twin Cities. Other characters from the strip soon followed.
