Guest Cartoonist: Why Do You Get To Use Your Phone?

Our guest cartoonist is back. She will turn 7 next month. 🙂
Here is the dialogue:
Student: “Why do you get to use your phone in class?”
Teacher: “Because I’m the boss of you and go back and do your work.”
Student: “Ugh!”

I Keep Bumping Into Desks

smaller aisles

I keep bumping into desks. When I think I can fit through the aisle, I realize I was wrong. I keep having the awkward experience of my body accidentally brushing a student. Unfortunately, I have the sneaking suspicion that the aisles aren’t getting smaller.


Happy Labor Day!

Here is what I have been working on. I am currently rethinking the After Class concept and brainstorming ways to improve. I am not a trained artist but have been doing the best I can on the After Class series. Some feedback I have received indicates I should probably incorporate recurrent characters, which I am in the process of drafting now. I have some sketches in progress and have created composite personalities. I am also considering names for them.

Another thing I am trying to improve is the quality of the drawings. I was looking at some caricatures we had done at a birthday party last year and realized that my comics lack the funny caricature element. I have been practicing drawing in order to better capture people’s individual personalities in my drawings. You can see my early attempts below. Please be kind as these are my first attempts. See if you can guess the individual drawn from the newspaper or gossip magazine below. Scroll down to the bottom if you would like to see the answers. Have fun! Feel free to comment or message me your thoughts or suggestions. 🙂
