I am an artist.

I have a couple of teaching credentials- English and Digital Media- so naturally I am teaching a middle school art class. My students are currently studying the most important of art skills: creating cartoon mascots for terrible fake cereals. We developed a couple of them as a class. The first was an unnamed hamburger fellow.

Two drawings of cartoon hamburgers.  One looks dangerous.
Hammy? Burgo-Man?

I was particularly pleased with the drippy cheese nose. The smaller version was an attempt make him look more like a fun mascot and less like a failed genetic experiment.

The second was this sentient ice cream cone:

Hey kids! I.C. Kreme ponders his existence!
Also pictured: a very rough sketch of a yam with bloodshot eyes.

As you can see, my teaching philosophy is “education is serious.”
