WHAT’S YOUR NAME?

bartolo teachingI recently worked as a Teacher with several groups of international students. I really liked this experience and inspired me with a series of brand new comic strips!

Here is the first one with me and my students.

Their age and English level vary a lot and sometimes we don’t really have a common language to use, and the communication can be a big challenge. Humor is my favorite channel to communicate with them and they like it. I like it too when they make an effort to find ways to joke with me.

I drew this comic strip using Adobe Illustrator.

THE LEAVING PARTY

the_leaving_partyLiving in a place where a lot of people come an go as soon as a new opportunity comes up, meeting people that want to spend the rest of their lives here and then soon after they go is something you get used to.

A few days ago this happened to a friend of my sister and this concept all of a sudden came up into my mind. It’s been a bit embarrassing: everybody was sad for her departure, and I burst into laughs.

Anyway, I did this drawing using Adobe Illustrator.
