The Smithsonian has digitized a scrapbook of clippings by the artist Ray Yoshida (BFA 1953). “Yoshida collected images from comics, the back-of-the-book ads that followed comic-book stories, and newspaper comic strips, grouping scraps together in loose typologies: hands; explosions; kisses; the sea,” reports Slate. Yoshida, who began teaching at SAIC in 1959, is thought to have assembled the scrapbook in the late 1960s.
