SAVANNAH – High school sophomore Quentin Sweeney completed his curriculum at a correspondence school and has secured employment drawing cartoon turtles, pirates, chickens and other characters.
“Tippy got me in the door,” said Sweeney, who first saw an ad for the art course several months ago in the back of a comic book. He submitted his drawing and caught the attention of instructors, who contacted Sweeney and facilitated his admission to the school.
“My folks thought three grand was steep, but look at me now. This degree will pay for itself within a year.”
The details of Sweeney’s employment are a bit murky for now, but he will begin earning “royalty points” as soon as his artwork recoups “capital outlay expenditures” by the online agency that hired him.
