Chalkboard Drawings: The “8 bit” edition

Posted in chalkboard drawings with tags , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2013 by Christopher Pearce

I draw a picture of myself on my classroom chalkboard everyday. I collect these pictures on my cellphone camera and post them on Sundays. You can see the rest here.


Continuing last week’s theme, this is an all video game week. It’s a bit of a mess. I originally wanted it to be an all Nintendo themed week… and I guess it still is, even though Pac Man isn’t best remembered as an 8-bit game.

The rest of the chalkboard drawings are behind the cut, but this one is different from the rest and got a pretty great reaction from the kids. Jerry Nelson’s work with the Muppets was a HUGE part of my childhood. I didn’t realize how big a part of my students’ childhood he was as well. I’m glad I could share the guy’s life with everyone.

The rest of these are Nintendo themed.

I was thinking about doing a big drawing of all the Nintendo characters I loved as a kid… but I only got this far.

An 11th Doctor head sketch. It’s been awhile, but I believe I may have been aping someone else’s drawing when I doodled this in the margins of my sketchbook. I wish I could remember!

Normally I try to figure out some kind of “theme” to go along with my chalkboard drawings… something that reflects back into whatever we’re learning or, at the very least, is sustainable over the course of five days.

This week I did “guy holding a sword of some kind.” It makes no sense, didn’t reflect back on my teaching, and was just kind of stupid.0921090743

There’ll be a comic about this somewhere (far) down the pike, but I have a bunch of action figures decorating my room and one of them is a crappy old Link from “The Legend of Zelda.” I’ve had like fifteen kids come up to me and BEG me to give or sell it to them. It’s one of the worst toys ever though.


…and this is where the whole thing petered out.


For two days, we played a grammar relay race game in my classroom (again, something that’ll later be seen in the comic strip) so I didn’t do any drawings on those days beside myself as a referee.

I forgot to take a picture of Friday’s.
