Grit & Growth Mindset Sketchnotes

Ever since I was a high school student in the 80s, I found that it was much easier to pay attention during lectures and remember what was said if I drew as I listened.  Usually, for me that means cartoons!  Years later I discover Sketchnotes and a whole Sketchnote Army of likeminded individuals.  I created these sketchnotes live during a presentation on Grit and Growth Mindset at our teacher inservice day.

The Good Muslim

"Who is my neighbor?" What would Jesus say if he walked the earth today? I mentioned to a friend that I believe today He would tell the story of "The Good Muslim." My friend said, "You should make a comic of that!" and I did.

Dragonsleep

 
I made this 14 page comic for a contest sponsored by Comics Workbook magazine.  The challenge was to create a 14 page comic with two covers, consisting only of nine panel pages -- each panel the same size.  There's nothing like a deadline to get you moving. Amazingly, I finished this start to finish in one week!  I think I broke all personal records for speed drawing.   It occurred to me that I could do roughly one page each for each step in the Hero's Journey. It is Hero with a Thousand Faces -- Walesified.

When Worlds Collide

This is my contribution to an anthology. I enjoyed this formalist experiment, using the rows of panels to represent different dimensions and showing what happens "when worlds collide."
