IT'S BACK TO SCHOOL AND TIME TO DRAW CARTOONS FOR THE KIDDIES! PLUS DR. STRANGE!

Posted on August 19, 2016

We've been back to school for three weeks, and my classes have been working hard. They buy original cartoons from me using their Clopper Cash. I passed 100 cartoons in only three weeks. This class may pass my record of 1400 cartoons in one year. We'll see.

All told, I've probably done over 15,000 cartoons in my teaching career. Lots of former students tell me they still hold onto them.

Below are two cartoons I did. The plant one was from my imagination and cost that student $50. The killer robot chasing a lava hero was a requested one and that costs $70. I was particularly taken by how these turned out and decided to share the two stages of these particular drawings. These typically take about ten minutes to do.









And, just because I want to, here are three Funko figures that sit at my desk.

What a cool teacher you are! How inspiring for the kids, too, to see their imagination (or the nightmares) turned into cartoons like this. What I'd like to know is how these kids EARN their Clopper Cash in the first place? Is it a case where they have to behave, do their homework, etc, so they get to save up and buy your cartoon? If so, you're also teaching them responsibility, which is fabulous!

They earn them from helping out in class, being responsible, finding words of the day in their reading, using lots of strategies in their writing, and having their homework in. It is fake cash with little monsters on the bills. I am always watching for them to display their integrity and valor. They also should try to avoid dire situations and causing a commotion in class. If any students read this, they can earn themselves four dollars from the last few sentences. :)
