Illustration Friday: Homage

Here's my homage to John Kricfalusi, creator of Ren and Stimpy. The title of this piece is "Teacher's Pet," and I've done it in a style and humor vein that I think John K would have found amusing.

I was always the kid in school that kept out of trouble, did my work, and got good grades. I kept my trap shut, and I think that gave my teachers the idea that I'd be the perfect lackey. It seems every time a teacher would have to leave the classroom for a moment, I was the kid chosen to take the names of the kids who didn't stay on task. Well, the joke's on you, Teach! I just used the time to keep to myself and doodle! Ha ha!

I just re-took the pop quiz, and this time I only got one of three. How is my score getting worse? Too much math in one day... that's how. I love this one, sir - it's quite nice.

Hahaha.. As a teacher that's funny. I always pick the joker in class to watch them all because nobody likes a squealer and chances are.... NOBODY likes him anyways!!Hahaha , just kidding.
Love the style.

I was going to ask if you were from Moreland but did enough googling to see that you probably are. We just watched the Velveteen Rabbit. I noticed your name in the credits and remembered a conversation I had with your mother over ten years ago when she was telling me about you. So I had to do some looking. Fun to see a name I recognized, even though I have not met you.
