Whiteboard Comics

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Coldisthesea, May 27, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Every day I try and draw a "Today in History" comic on my classroom whiteboard.
    Generally, I only have 20ish minutes to do it while I'm multitasking and doing a million other things to get the kids situated and start the day. 9 times out of 10, it's a rush job, and I later cringe at mistakes I don't see while I'm doing it in the moment. Poor draftsmanship being the most obvious. Not to mention, the occasional misspelling, poor grammar, incorrect data, a bad caricature and a million other things. I use photo reference when I can and wing it when I can't.
    Here are a few to start the thread, I'll add more when I have time.

  6. No netball team here, I'm afraid. St. Trinian's, we're not!
  7. Thanks all. I have fun doing them, and the kids think they're getting one over on me when I kill time in class explaining them.

  11. Enough people have made the same suggestion, that I'm getting closer to making a blog. (I've got about two years worth saved.) Definitely, one of my first summer projects.
