Notebook Comics: Why Rambo?

Posted in 2019-2020 School Year, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on August 8, 2019 by Christopher Pearce



I’m trying something new this year, drawing comics in a Moleskin notebook instead of in a sketchbook. I’m hoping this will lead to more productivity and less preciousness with what I’m trying to get across.

This comic is based on something one of my professors at Boston University once said to me.

I’m going to try to post more comics in the upcoming school year but I’m also going to recommend you follow me on Twitter at @teachablecomics because it’s easier for me to post stuff there lately.

New Big Fat Notebook in 2018

Posted in my big fat notebook, Uncategorized with tags , , , on February 9, 2018 by Christopher Pearce


Hey Tumblr people! I’m excited to let y’all know that I’ll be contributing comics and illustrations to a NEW addition to the Big Fat Notebook series for Workman Publishing this year! Previous to this, I drew the Math and Science BFNs… and I’m currently hard at work on another great addition to the line.


For folks who’ve never seen the books, they’re wonderfully appealing explanations of middle school curriculum with lots of jokes and clever bits that make understanding Common Core Standards a whole lot less daunting.

I’ll talk about the work more in the weeks ahead, but for now, just an excited heads up. I’m super pumped to doodle in another awesome BFN!

Bad Kids…

Posted in 2016-2017 school year, Uncategorized with tags , , , on August 23, 2017 by Christopher Pearce


This was frustrating! I had to explain to this former student that my reasons for accepting a new job had nothing to do with the behavior of the students at her school and instead stemmed from a variety of other concerns.

I’ve rarely encountered “bad kids”. Bad situations, yes… but almost never bad kids.
