Artful Comics was granted its full appeal at Tuesday’s Student Government Association meeting.
Sawyer Hurwitz, the current editor of the publication, appealed for $173.11 to pay for printing 400 copies of the group’s third annual comic anthology and a launch party.
According to the organization’s website, Artful Comics formed in 2009 and is the only on-campus club that showcases graphic art.
“[The issues] were all gone in one day,” said Hurwitz, a sophomore visual and media arts major, of last year’s issue. “Our email list alone is in the hundreds. We print in black and white to cut costs.”
After accounting for a $2 discrepancy, the appeal was raised to $175.11, where it was passed unanimously by all present members.
