Born in 1986, Caitlin Hackett is a Brooklyn, New York based artist, illustrator and creature concept designer.
I draw a picture of myself on my classroom’s chalkboard everyday. I collect those pictures as camera phone photos and post them on Sundays. See the rest here.
As is my tradition every October, the chalkboard becomes a countdown to Halloween with some of the most famous ghouls in monster-dom. Things week I took an extended look at my favorite, Frankenstein’s Monster and all his attendant cast of characters.
A few weeks ago, my students built a word wall for the classroom consisting of key terms we’d be discussing for first quarter. My requirements were:
1. The word, big and bold.
2. The definition of the word.
3. Some creative way of illustrating that word.
These are the results and they are fantastic. I love the Adventure Time and Batman: The Animated Series efforts, but everyone take a second to admire the “propaganda” contribution. My students are seriously talented.
Also pictured, the classroom collection of random action figures along the ledge of the chalkboard. More on that one some other time.
