Francesco Marciuliano Sally Forth

Sally Forth at MCAD

I got a kick out of drawing today’s Sally Forth strip (4/5/2013) as I’ve had “those moments” as a teacher – where you’re completely NOT connecting with the students. The writer, Francesco Marciuliano, hit the nail on the head with this one.


As such, I couldn’t help but populate the second panel with a bunch of students from where I’ve most recently taught – the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.


1st Row (Foreground):
Caitlin Skaalrud and Amaya Goldsmith.

2nd Row:
Mandie Brasington, Jack Kotz and Jay Rasgorshek.

3rd Row:
Jaime Willems and actual character from the strip.

4th Row:
April Kasulis, Ben Tye, Lindsey Hall and Mr. Croptoff.

As I mostly taught Comic Art at MCAD (what other kind of art is there?) I’m including a link to the MCAD Comic Art Tumblr so you can see some of the incredible work they’ve been up to.

On a side note, all the students pictured are now copyrighted by King Features Syndicate, Inc. World rights reserved. Just saying…
