Teachable Moments

A journal comic by Chris Pearce

2 notes &

A few years ago, someone pitching to The Folger Shakespeare Library contacted me and asked if I might produce a couple of illustrations for possible inclusion in a textbook about teaching Shakespeare to high schoolers. I did a couple of these and never again heard about the project. The lines the kids are using are from Act 3, Scene 5 of Romeo and Juliet, which I also used for this comic a few weeks ago.
