Feel free to check out my stuff and if you'd like: drop me a comment or two - I'd really appreciate that! ;)

"Keep your temper," said the Caterpillar.
"Is that all?" said Alice, swallowing down her anger as well as she could.
"No," said the Caterpillar.
Alice thought she might as well wait, as she had nothing else to do, and perhaps after all it might tell her something worth hearing. For some minutes it puffed away without speaking, but at last it unfolded its arms, took the hookah out of its mouth again and said, "So you think you're changed, do you?"
"I'm afraid I am, sir," said Alice; "I can't remember things as I used to - and I don't keep the same size for ten minutes together!"
"Can't remember what things?" said the Caterpillar.

Well, hello everyone! How are you? Doing okay? Yeah, I figured as much... Me? Yeah, not working or drawing enough - but otherwise fine, I suppose.
Enough with the small talk, though. This is one of those rarely seen journal updates of mine - and this time I'm actually doing a feature
. I'm showing you some stuff by three outstanding artists whose work I've been following for quite a while now. Each of them has an incredibly unique style that will blow your minds and kick your asses. Enjoy!

Deviant-ID-2015 by constantly-confused
Alright, since it has been a couple of years since I updated my deviant-Id, finally here's a new one. I suppose I had to do it some time... ;)
Also: Since this deviation is not really a piece of "artwork" but a design-element of my dA-profile, it's not published under a CC-licence (I ain't a good model anyway).
I might be editing this quite frequently. ;)
School by constantly-confused
Well, yesterday I came across a couple of unfinished drawings while going through my desk and this was one of them. I think I started this in 2013, but I'm not quite sure.
Anyway - most of the foreground was already done except for some shading on the bottom rocks and the third "kid"-character. I then decided to add the bats and the red background.
All of it is done with ballpoint pens.

About the drawing itself
As some of you already know: I want to become a teacher of math and philosophy. I highly value the education in various fields and the acquisition of knowledge in general. Especially important to me though is enabling students to think for themselves and to teach them how to apply their knowledge in their everyday life. That is a skill that goes beyond the mere accumulation of dead facts. "School" as an institution often sabotages this goal by forcing students to portrait certain kinds of behaviour and focussing on discipline, following rules, paying attention (no matter if it actually makes sense or not) and not on creative and independent thinking. This scenario is not a necessary one though - other ways of teaching, of pedagogical work and activity are possible and that is what this drawing is about:
This drawing is a reminder to myself of what not to become - a reminder not to become another monstrosity.

Thanks for the :llama:! :)

(Was it because I commented on your pic?)

I cannot vouch for the definite causality - but maybe: yes.
You seemed like a nice person who is fit to take care of a Llama - so don't forget to feed it... ;)

He gave me A Llama Badge....Now I think I'm the one "constantly confused" La la la la 
constantly-confused Featured By Owner May 11, 2015
Hehe, yeah... those llamas are confusing. You actually own almost an infinite amount of them to give away, but you can give only one per person. You can only show those llamas that have been given to you and those are the ones that you can't give away and have to take care of... those llama-things are really weird... ;)

Also: the scientific name for llama is "lama glama" - it even sounds funny....

Ehm, thanks. I really wonder why your account has been shut down so suddenly - hope everything is alright! Take care!
