New Big Fat Notebook in 2018

Posted in my big fat notebook, Uncategorized with tags , , , on February 9, 2018 by Christopher Pearce


Hey Tumblr people! I’m excited to let y’all know that I’ll be contributing comics and illustrations to a NEW addition to the Big Fat Notebook series for Workman Publishing this year! Previous to this, I drew the Math and Science BFNs… and I’m currently hard at work on another great addition to the line.


For folks who’ve never seen the books, they’re wonderfully appealing explanations of middle school curriculum with lots of jokes and clever bits that make understanding Common Core Standards a whole lot less daunting.

I’ll talk about the work more in the weeks ahead, but for now, just an excited heads up. I’m super pumped to doodle in another awesome BFN!

Super cool pages from My Big Fat Notebook…

I thought I’d post up a few pages of Everything You Need to Ace Science in One Big Fat Notebook: The Complete Middle School Study Guide for everyone to look at. They look so great! You can see that they insides mimic a real notebook, right down to the lined pages.

It looks like the book is available on Amazon right now!

The book I illustrated came in the mail yesterday!

Around this time last year, I was finishing up drawings and doodles for a fun book project. Yesterday, I got a few copies of the finished product in the mail and they’re gorgeous. Seriously, besides being dead useful resources for middle schoolers, the design sense on these is just wonderful. I’m so proud to be associated with such a high quality product.

It was a weird experience for me to see my name on the inside cover. I’m an illustrator!

This is exciting news!

Hey everybody, like the title says I have some exciting news to share but I have to temper it with some slightly disappointing stuff. Let’s do the latter first.

Normally I start a new year of posting comics in the first week of September. Students in my neck of the woods here in Southwest Ohio begin the school year mid-August. I take those first few weeks of school to get a backlog of a few strips and then begin in earnest around the time when most of the country is heading back to the classroom. That’s been my routine for going on four years now.

So I need to say I won’t be posting many comics in September this year. I haven’t even started working on them. That’s the disappointing news.

The GOOD news is the reason why I’m progressing so slowly on my own work… and it’s something I’ve known for a few months but only recently sought permission to mention here. Workman Publishing hired me to illustrate a couple of books this past summer! The delay in my personal output can be chalked up to receiving some honest-to-goodness paying work drawing comics and the like. I had to sign a contract and everything!

I’m crazy excited to share more of what I’m up to with you all, but I think for the moment this will do. I’m hoping to start posting comics at a more conservative schedule than normal sometime at the end of the month but I’m definitely playing that by ear at this point. At any rate, I promise they’re coming… as soon as I finish up the illustrations on the second book.
