Every year on my class’s final exam, I give my students the same bonus question. For a few extra points on the exam, they are asked to draw a picture of me on the back of their test booklet. I take my favorites out of all those drawings, frame them in my classroom, and hang them in the Mr. Pearce Art Gallery.

These are some of the drawings from my Senior level English course; they get to take their final exams a week early in preparation for graduation.

No comic today but here are a couple of things I’ve been sitting on for a few months.

A sketch page I stole from Sade, one of my students this year. I thought it was so good I couldn’t resist. It reminds me of the kind of thing I do in my sketchbook from time to time. Look at this, she’s so good!

student drawings: king kong, part one

Posted in student drawings with tags , on September 13, 2012 by Christopher Pearce

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.

student drawings: batman highlights

Posted in student drawings with tags , , , , on August 5, 2012 by Christopher Pearce

I’ve slacked off big time in scanning some of these terrific student drawings of me in the last few weeks. To refresh: Every year on my final exam, I give students a one point bonus if (after they are finished with the scholastic portion of the test) they draw a picture of me. I spend the better part of the year drawing pictures of myself on the chalkboard, so I’m interested to see what their take on me is.

I got a LOT of Batman drawings this year, so let’s jump into it!
