Q:Dear Mr. Bendis, I have an English teacher that has criticized genre fiction feeling it's something geared for younger audience and because of that in class we all read dramatic and personal literature. She's criticized contemporary prose, feeling that readers now don't want to do the work and because of that books are becoming dumber and lazier. You're also an English teacher, do you share the same beliefs?
Obviously I do not share the same beliefs. that sounds ridiculous.
but forget the mountains of evidence that does not support this claim, when I was a student and as a teacher it frustrates me when teachers use their pulpit to try to limit their students desires and imaginations.
when somebody stands in front of a room and criticizes something like contemporary prose all I think is: so they rejected your manuscript
it doesn’t matter what I as a teacher like or don’t like, it’s what inspires my students. it is my job to use their passions to make them better at whatever I’m teaching.
for example, almost every semester I have taught has included students who have a deep love for deep down hard-core manga that I have just not experienced yet. titles I’ve never even heard of and I know some stuff. titles at 1st glance seem like pixies and fairy dust stuff which doesn’t at face value really appeal to me… I would never stand in their way of applying this passion towards their own work. in fact, opposite.
8” X 11” giclee prints, numbered timed edition release. Available individually or as a full set which will also include the exclusive War Doctor print as a free bonus.
A portion of the sales will also be donated to Home Sweet Home, an organization that helps incarcerated mothers and their children reconnect in society.
Wow! I actually like something about 1 then 2 & 3 the best. But the fez & mop on 11 - rock on! :D
I did a ton of illustrations for the recent middle-grade novel, Scare Scape, by Sam Fisher. It’s a really fun book that reminded me a lot of the stuff I would’ve been really into in late elementary school, like Goosebumps, Spooksville, etc. Lots of fun monsters. Doing the huge cover was a, shall we say, harrowing experience.
I think there are about twenty of these black and white drawings in the book, that accompany a little Monster-Manual-ish description. I really like working in black and white.
You can check the book out on Amazon.
Space Dandy Storyboards, key animation and layouts from the talented MICHIO MIHARA’s ( Kick Heart, Paprika, Spriggan, Jin-Roh, Princess Mononoke, Ninja Scroll) work station at Studio Bones. I love how the hottest looking shows are still done w/ pencil and paper for pre-production and main production. It’s about the masters, not the tools. :-)
I was scrolling throught tumblr and suddently I realized that my city is beautiful.
Lisbon for the win.
