End of Semester



Once again, the end of a school year and the end of another round of teaching. Leaves one with a sense of accomplishment, a little bit, but more a sense of confusion, because you, like the students are not quite sure just what and how much happened, and a sudden hole in your schedule - like Wile E. Coyote, each week one has been rushing off the cliff of security into the high open space of the classroom where you hover gesticulating wildly before dropping thousands of feet to your doom below; suddenly you 're not doing that.
And then tons of marking , because in your enthusiasm to give out assignments, you forget that you have to grade them. 
And y'know, half of them are pretty good.
I don't spend this much time on all of them, but here's a drawover from one.

Your class was great Scott. It was fun, informative and so much more, but really more than anything else, it was inspiring:-) Thank you for the weekly "rushing off the cliff of security into the high open space of the classroom where you hover gesticulating wildly before dropping thousands of feet to your doom below" :-) your students are eternally grateful!!!

Re the layout: I added details mostly-bricks and cobbles and pipes and signs these are the things that give it a sense of place, also changed some of the building shapes and sizes for better comp....the design of the piece still bothers me; all the construction lines are too uniform, need to be broken up, interrupted...the horizon feels too high, although that's not to say , don't do it. Just not feeling right here.
