Sketchbook: Student awesomeness

Posted in sketchbook, student drawings with tags , , on January 21, 2013 by Christopher Pearce

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: 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!

2011-2012 school year: mustache!

Posted in 2011-2012 school year with tags , , , , , on February 23, 2012 by Christopher Pearce

I know the facial hair thing is a little weird, given how I normally draw my beard as just a random zig-zag line. I will also ask that, starting next week, you just forget about my mustache. I shaved it off immediately after making a splash with my “asshole movie producer” character during the students’ presentations.

I guess I could have said this yesterday, but that “character” I do is basically Irwin Mainway, the shady businessman character Dan Aykroyd played on Saturday Night Live. You can see why I’d want a mustache for that, right? Right?

Would you like to se some of the Romeo & Juliet posters from this year’s 9th graders?  Check behind the cut.

friday odds and ends: random drawings

Posted in commentary, sketchbook with tags , on May 14, 2010 by Christopher Pearce

Although I have quite a few talented artists in my classes, I don’t post student work very often. I suppose this is because I can’t really give any students credit here and maintain the level of professionalism that allows me to comfortably draw the comic. Still, one of my kids drew this picture of me a couple of weeks ago and vanity demands that I share it.

…and this is a drawing of my family I did during a staff meeting on Wednesday.

(I drew it on surplus pink copy paper. That wasn’t a stylistic choice or anything)
