Why I teach

So the Yets and I are in the classroom,student-teaching
working with some incredible young artists and animators!
(some of which I will post their YETS! art)
I have two placements to do this.
I just finished placement #1 and
I gave my cooperating teacher the YETS! books as a gift for their kids.
I just got this awesome card/reply in the mail...
This made all the hard work worthwhile. 
 Now to make time for new YETS! stuff.
(I've been participating in, Drawlloween 2016 on Facebook,
if you haven't seen it. 
I will be posting my stuff from Drawlloween next month.)

Yet keep 'em flyin'

This was created for the Character Design Challenge on FaceBook.
The theme for the month was, aviator.
There are incredible designs here, so check out the page.
Since the rules of the challenge is to focus only on one character,
I will be painting the rest later.

Not writing A.P.A. style, Yet?

School stars early with an email...
"Please type and print a one to two page autobiography and bring it on Sunday. Tell us about your family, your time in schools before Mercyhurst(University), what you have been involved with and enjoyed at Mercyhurst (University) and most importantly why you want to teach and what you are looking forward to as a teacher."

So I did this.
My point is this, if you have creative students in your classes,
allow them to express an assignment in a meaningful way to the student.
I'll see if he accepts this, it isn't in APA Format.

Yet an uncommon dancing problem

You have to be cautious when dancing with those fairies.
All of us should have such horrible problems, eh?

Yet posing for practicing!

So this is why the other folks were posing...
to be on display in San Diego.
(there is a 24"  ruler for scale) 
pencil, brush and ink

Friday, July 8, 2016


The reason why they are posing is a mystery...for now.
This will be hung up in the ComicCon booth for you to see when you are there,
(there is a 24 inch ruler on the right for scale).
ink & brush & pencil

Yet question everything!

When fairies want to dance with the magical creatures,
just go with it.

Yet to Teach...

So...did you ever wonder what these creature's school is like?
Click on the picture!
Here is a whole website that compares a Yets' school with 
classrooms that I have been in and,
with downloadable art!
The site has many big expensive clinical terms
(I paid a lot of money for these words so I had to use them) 
Yet the cartoons are fun.
(pun intended)

Yet accomodations for the special child...

If you have a special(est?) child yet,
would you prefer using medications first,
would you be cooperative with doctors and teachers, 
would you blame yourself for your child's disability?
There's never an immediate answer...unless they breath fire.
I got very lazy and drew in pencil and I apologize.

I know it is popular to show some of the process of making comics so here
are two quick photos.

This is the layout sketch, I tend to draw with a 4H pencil or a blue pencil.
I like to capture any important facial expressions in a piece before I commit to ink
(or darker pencil lines in this case).

However, it all starts in a plain old notebook with scribbled dialogue.
I don't care about grammar or spelling as long as can get a rhythm to the scene.
I also change dialogue on the fly as I am lettering the final cartoon.
Nothing is permanent until it is published and
this way I have license to have a little spontaneity.

Yet a special need

So the problem was proposed,

Martha’s IEP states that she should take tests in a distraction-free room and be given extended time to take the tests. On the day of one test, her teacher was absent. Since prior preparations had not been made, Martha was forced to take the test in her classroom under standard time limits.
If you had been her teacher, what would you have done to avoid this situation?

...needless to say the teacher gave Martha two options of Monday or Wednesday.
Martha chose Wednesday, and then flew to lunch.

Yet a familiy quality of life in education...

 So would you be so supportive, Yet?
The Yets have not told me whether they are associated with any 
part of other educational mindsets such as Carol Dweck.*
So I apologize for any confusion.

*This is because the Yets only come with one mind and not a set.

Yet a learning difficulty

This prejudice from men is
the likely reason why
many Yets excelled in
kinesthetic and intrapersonal intelligence.

Yet naturally speaking...

...in response to class.
All I had to do was write a paragraph, but then this sketch
appeared in my sketchbook.
I want to draw it better at a later date.

Yet another Valentine...

So...in class
we were asked to finish a poem that
started with the first line,
"for each delicious Valentine cookie..."
this is what my partner and I wrote, 
then this appeared in my sketchbook.

Yet any landing you make....

I had time between classes and this commercial assignment,
so I finished the first new piece for 2016!
