Knock knock? - Who's there? - Me! - Who's me?

I am confused. I spend my time doing nothing mostly, sometimes something though. Stuck deep within mathematics and philosophy. If I have the time and the requiered state of mind, I like to play with paint and various drawing utensils - Stuff? Things? Abominations? Well, since I'm usually quite proud of my creations, I'd like to share them with all you people out there. This is the place where you can check them out. Enjoy!


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.
So have you been faving a lot of deviations just to create some attention for yourself?
Or are your faves like treasures to you and each and every one of those pieces still blows your mind everytime you look at it?

If you fall into the second category, this might be just the thread for you! Get other people to browse through your collection of faves!

And these are the rules:
1. Browse through my faves (not my gallery) and post one piece that catches your eye!
2. I'll do the same with your faves.
3. Look at other people's faves as well if you like - I can't do it all on my own. ;)
  • Listening to: Fötus, NMZS, Nomeansno, Mark Lanegan
  • Reading: Habermas, Bukowski, Carrol
  • Watching: the world outside my window
"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!
