Meet the Artist!

Posted in illustration with tags , on January 21, 2017 by Christopher Pearce


I did one of these #meetheartist drawings but I didn’t include any dislikes because this has been a bummer of a week and I wanted to stay positive.

Heaven to me is a bowl of Ellen’s buffalo chicken dip, a cold beer, and an evening of M*A*S*H on MeTV. The suburbs have claimed me as one of their own.

Oh and “Hey Joan” is what I sing to my daughter when I put her to bed every night. It’s just Hey Jude with her name swapped in for Jude’s.

Hiya everybody. On this federal holiday, I wanted to take a second and talk about a few running changes I’m making for the comic. I’m hopeful that this will mean more frequency with putting stuff up here.

So, starting tomorrow, I’m returning to a daily schedule. I’m excited about that!

The comics will be in a slightly different format (3 panels a day) because I’m starting to think about collecting them regularly and I feel like that will make eventually printing them out an easier job. The limit on panels is something I came up with to make doing the comics a little more feasible for me and so far it seems to be working rather well. I’m planning on working in more creative layouts for “big idea” comics but I think this format will work well for a daily journal type strip.

There will be a 2 to 3 week lag between when I draw the comics and when I post them. For example, next week’s strips will deal with the first week of January when we returned from holiday break. Tying the comics to actual dates is something I wanted to do at the beginning of the strip but ended up being too formidable a task considering the almost-daily schedule I had imposed on myself.

I’ve created a new Twitter feed for the comic. If you’re interested in following the comic on that platform, please add @teachablecomics to your daily Twitter reading. I struggled with the Twitter thing for awhile because I genuinely like using the platform to put the comic out into the world… but I also like to Tweet about TV shows and non-education related nonsense. From here on out, @teachablecomics will be all about education, and @capearce81 will be for my personal use. Feel free to drop that one from your daily reading if you’re uninterested.

…and I think that’s it. I’m appreciative to all of you who have been reading the comics for so long and I’m hopeful that my dry spell is over. Thanks so much!

This is a follow-up to yesterday’s comic. I wanted to focus on the very real idea that sometimes teachers have to ignore the teachable moment and push on… and while we shouldn’t be excited about having that happen, sometimes students miss those teachable moments as well.
