Teacher Comics: Classroom furniture at bargain prices

Here’s a fun fact about most public schools I’ve encountered in my decade long career – they are woefully in need of bookshelves… but at the same time, they are SWIMMING in filing cabinets. Most inner city schools don’t have a roof that will withstand a light rain, but we always have a spare filing cabinet or five.

By most demographics, I fall into the tail-end of Gen X… but every once and awhile I’ll see something that says I might be a Millennial? At any rate, I’m an old fart compared to some of the young teachers I was hired alongside this year.

WWComic1Hey everybody, I’m going to start posting new comics this week! It’s going to be a slower roll out than usual as I’m finishing up some of the work for this illustration gig but I’ll probably start posting 2 or 3 strips a week and see where it goes from there.

Ohio Schools Charter Fire Department Comic

Hi everyone… still a few weeks away from starting up comics full time, but I thought you might enjoy my latest contribution to Ohio Schools Magazine. I’m pretty happy with the way it came out.

This is exciting news!

Hey everybody, like the title says I have some exciting news to share but I have to temper it with some slightly disappointing stuff. Let’s do the latter first.

Normally I start a new year of posting comics in the first week of September. Students in my neck of the woods here in Southwest Ohio begin the school year mid-August. I take those first few weeks of school to get a backlog of a few strips and then begin in earnest around the time when most of the country is heading back to the classroom. That’s been my routine for going on four years now.

So I need to say I won’t be posting many comics in September this year. I haven’t even started working on them. That’s the disappointing news.

The GOOD news is the reason why I’m progressing so slowly on my own work… and it’s something I’ve known for a few months but only recently sought permission to mention here. Workman Publishing hired me to illustrate a couple of books this past summer! The delay in my personal output can be chalked up to receiving some honest-to-goodness paying work drawing comics and the like. I had to sign a contract and everything!

I’m crazy excited to share more of what I’m up to with you all, but I think for the moment this will do. I’m hoping to start posting comics at a more conservative schedule than normal sometime at the end of the month but I’m definitely playing that by ear at this point. At any rate, I promise they’re coming… as soon as I finish up the illustrations on the second book.
