Step Right Up!

By | December 1, 2011

In honour of Mikhail Gershovich‘s turn to collect teaching carnival links, I did a little drawing for him.

And now, I cannot get Tom Waits out of my head…

Step right up, step right up, step right up,
Everyone’s a winner, blog links galore
That’s right, you too can be the proud owner
Of the quality goes in before the name goes on
One-tenth of a dollar, one-tenth of a dollar, we got service after enrolment
You need pedagogy? we got pedagogy, how ’bout engagement?
Something for the prof, something for the T.A.,
Something for the researcher, hmm
Three for a dollar

    What a joyous image for education whack-a-mole. I’m drawn back to me day as a kid on the pier at Ocean City Maryland, spending about $12 worth to win a $3 stuffed animal.

    Hopefully this metaphor falls flat.

    Mikhail looks like a nice carny 😉

    This image is awesome. A really nice touch for the TC. Thank you so much, Giulia.

    I actually think I look like a young Cogdog in that pic.

    Giula, you continue to delight and amaze with your image work.

    After seeing how you’ve rendered Mikhail, I’m even more excited about for the #ds106radio comic book.

    Please tell me it will be finished before Lent.
