I draw a picture of myself on my chalkboard everyday. I collect those pictures as camera phone photos and post them on Sundays.

2010-2011 school year: day thirty

I really, really, really enjoyed drawing today’s comic. Fact.

ALSO A FACT: Newbery Award winning author Neil Gaiman tweeted about one of my DonorsChoose projects last night, causing it to be INSTANTLY funded!

I am ridiculously excited; I’ve been a fan of Neil’s since I was reading The Sandman in high school and for him to take a moment out of his day to give my classroom a hand is amazing. Thank you so much Mr. Gaiman!

Ironically, I have a comic coming up on Thursday where one of my students extolls the greatness that is Gaiman’s American Gods… so it’s weird how that worked out!

lori & nick’s wedding: part two

Posted in comics, lori & nick's wedding with tags , , on June 22, 2010 by Christopher Pearce

These are the second half of the mini-comic I posted here yesterday.


During college, my friends and I were big fans of the 1984 film adaptation of The Outsiders. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola, there are some seriously strange edits throughout that movie that made it fun to obsess over.

Lori also had a weird dance she would do whenever we played the Billy Joel song “Pressure”.


I think the first panel is self-explanatory, but the second needs a little clarification. When we were all in college, I was a cartoonist for Fredonia’s newspaper. Nick was a staff reporter for the paper and also contributed a one-panel comic that only occasionally veered into the realm of “making sense”. My impression was always that the comic page editor asked Nick to do something to fill those pages, which were always a little anemic. I knew I had to include a crossover panel in this comic. I am sure there were at least eight people who read this who were thrilled.


…and that’s that. I know this was probably pushing the limits of what people visit here for, as it has very little to do with teaching or my classroom… but I enjoyed drawing this little comic, so I was glad to share it!
