Chalkboard Drawings: The “Halloween Countdown, Part IV″ edition

I draw a picture of myself on my classroom’s chalkboard everyday. I collect those pictures as camera phone photos and post them on Sundays. See the rest here.




We’re kind of running through a grab-bag of leftover monsters this week. Pennywise the Clown is an interesting one that kind of lives on through re-runs of the IT miniseries on the SyFy Channel… which is strange because, while it was pretty good for its’ time, the actual movie doesn’t hold up too well.

The Gillman from The Creature from the Black Lagoon and King Kong are two of my favorites but they’ve never screamed “Halloween” to me, Kong especially. Still, since they are technically in that genre, they make the cut.


I was just a little lazy on Friday.

student drawings: king kong, part one

Early in the first days of school, a student of mine came over to my desk and asked me if I liked the movie King Kong– I have a picture of one of the theatrical posters from the original 1933 movie above my desk. I told him heck yes, I love Kong… and we got into a discussion about the flick. I could tell he was a fan because he knew all about the unfilmed “spider pit” sequence from the original flick.

Well, a few days later he brought this to me. PREPARE YOURSELF FOR SOME AWESOMENESS:

I don’t think you’ll argue with me when I point out what a better artist this guy is than I’ll ever be. Just look at how amazing this thing is… and then wait for tomorrow when I post his second drawing.

I had to take this picture with my Mac’s Photobooth, as I left my cellphone at home this day… hence the backwards lettering.

…and Friday’s drawing was this picture of Kang and Kodos I posted a few days ago.
