Last week I was invited by my friend/school teacher Jason to come to his school, the Minnesota Math and Science Academy, and speak to the students (aged 9 through 11) about comics and entertain them with some doodling. Armed with my trusty Microsoft Surface Pro 2, I proceeded to hook it up to their "Smart Board" in the classrooms (man, all we had growing up was ugly green chalk boards!) and show off some of my work. I then proceeded to do some quick drawing demos of their favorite requested characters as well as take on whatever silly questions they threw at me.
Speaking to classrooms is something that I do on occasion, and I think the kids were genuinely excited and fascinated. I've compiled that day's sketches here for you:
