First Graders are Fun

Since I graduated from BYU just a bit ago I've been trying to start up my illustration career.  But on the days that I don't have illustration jobs (which is quite a few because I don't have an art rep yet) I moonlight as substitute teacher.  Today I subbed for a class full of first graders which was really fun and way different than subbing for 5th and 6th graders.  

Throughout the day we read a bunch of different stories about space, astronauts and the solar system.  At the end of the day every kid got to make a planet of their very own and paint said planet with good ol' Crayola watercolors.  On the back of the planet each kid wrote a description of their planet.

Here's mine:

Hilarious. This is the planet "Avatar" should have taken place on.

Very nice! I had no idea that trailer parks were "evolved."

I bet you are an amazingly funny sub too!

I like how the next evolutionary step above living in the woods is trailer park.
Hey, at least they've discovered the wonderful barbeque!

LOL your phrasing in this sort of reminds me of that comic you drew of the boxing match and the britney spears pump-up song...
