Teachable Moments

A journal comic by Chris Pearce

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

As my classes begin our unit on Epic Poetry, we’re looking at The Odyssey and all its’ attendant monsters and gods. There are only four drawings this week - we had a snow day on Wednesday. You’ll notice I have Zeus’ great Olympus cloud sprinkling some snowflakes on Thursday in honor of this.

I know Medusa doesn’t make an appearance in The Odyssey but I couldn’t resist the tenuous opportunity to draw myself with Gorgon snake hair.
