I am an art lesson

So something amazingly cool happened today and I need to share it with you... faithful unblinking internet. I received this email today:

so I taught my art class last night and we did a Sto-inspred self-portrait lesson. I showed them the hamthrower strip, your coworkers as muppets, and the portrait you did of your friend as a fairy. They were stoked and inspired, and I actually got an amazing piece out of my kid (I'm attaching it b/c I thought it would give you a chuckle.) and Alicia and Nathe's Abby did a fairy vanquishing a monster, sword in hand (and scratch on arm)

I also got pictures of sponge bob square students, a Mario, a Luigi, and a self-portrait-of-kid-as-nerf-
attacker-of-family-dog. (the last one was a stretch, but our sculptural rendering might improve the idea; we're thinking of using foam rollers as the medium)

Anyhow, wanted to pass along the thanks and tell you you have 7 new DNoD fans! :)

Have a better Tuesday than your Monday was, and tell Courtney I said hello!


So a friend of mine is teaching children art and is using my work to motivate them. I cannot think of a cooler thing than that. Jessica also included the following work by her own child:

I am stunned in blissful gratitude.

Thanks Jess.

I love how I could tell this email was from JCB during the first few sentences. :)

NiN was a close second, as far as my lesson planning went (his substitute DNoD strip would have illustrated sketching, drafting, and "how to draw a flowing, bloody nose" quite nicely!) --I quite admire a guy with pretty mad basic art skillz, who also can translate art into uber-high tech animation-y stuff... But alas, he had no muppets in his toolbox...

...And now, kind Sto, that warm glow of "you just made my day" has been reciprocated-- thanks for the props!!
