this brief comic is one of several slides i made for a comic strip class that i will be teaching (again) this spring. i use it to illustrate how well comics communicate time.
i sort of had a hunch that i should be an art teacher when i first realized that i love this kind of stuff: whipping up sample artwork and simple illustrations for complex ideas. teaching itself is wonderful of course but class preparation is the time-devouring nitty gritty that no one really thinks about. not to mention class management and discipline which i enjoy as a sort of mental indian wrestling.
a vocation is whispering, i think, when you enjoy the jeckyll and the hyde of your profession.
