2010-2011 school year: day eighty five

I’m thinking about doing a mini-comic about substitute teaching, sort of a “How To” guide. If you have any questions or comments on substitute teaching, please leave ’em in the comments. The mini is something I’m looking to work on during the summer months.

Hey, look… new drawings. It’s been a while!

In my classes right now, we’re ramping up for the end of the year (something like 20 school days left!). I like to end the year with The Odyssey, as well as a bunch of other poems for National Poetry Month.

Anglophiles and fans of all things great will recognize my take on Wallace and Gromit here. I love W&G to an insane degree- when I was in high school, I devoted a significant amount of my senior year to animating a stop-motion claymation feature. It was torturously hard work! I also thought this was a good start for our week-long introduction to “The Odyssey” as Wallace is an archetypical “mad scientist/inventor” type character.

…this one’s probably self-explanatory.

Growing up, I was a big fan of Bill Amend’s FoxTrot. I had all the trades and I loved the way that it dealt with current geek/pop-culture trends in a timely fashion. When I finally learned how far in advance Amend had to work to make sure a week of “Star Wars” strips came out during the exact week that the Special Edition movies were released into theaters… it always impressed the heck out of me!
