Office Hours

Soon I will have the time to draw science cartoons again. The semester is speeding to a conclusion and the end is in sight. But it’s not here yet. So, until then, enjoy another delightful episode of Office Hours. My sons found my performance so embarrassing they ran from the room singing “la la laaa” just to avoid the awkward scene. You’ve been warned.

Check it out: I have to incomplete lines!

Yes, it has been a month since my last post. What can I say? Work happens. I don’t have any new cartoon stuff, but the first episode of the second season of Office Hours is out. There is a new opening sequence that features the pencil illustrations from my storyboards. This one is pretty funny. Enjoy!

The sixth and final episode of Office Hours is now available online. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the show, Office Hours is a web comedy about life in academia. It was recently covered by the Chronicle of Higher Ed. Although this is not exactly science comics, I did do the story boards (which are sort of like comics) and I am one of the actors (and I am sort of like a scientist). The episode is embedded below for those of you who have been following along. If you are new to it, check out the show’s Juniper College website. The episodes are arranged with the first on the far right and the latest on the far left. So to watch them in order you need to go from right to left. Like manga. (Am I good at superficial comic connections, or what?)

There is a nice article about the Juniata-based web series Office Hours on the Chronicles web site. It also includes six panels of the storyboards I did for the second episode (posted below).  Fantastic publicity for Nathan Wagoner, Ryan Wetzel, Kevin Ott and the rest of the hard-workin’ crew. If you haven’t watched them yet, I have archived them here.

Well, I’m not going to say too much about this episode except…my family will be so proud of me.  If my students see this I am guaranteed to lose what little credibility I have left. One things for sure: I’ll never EVER sit on my desk in class….

…but life has been considerably busier. just got back from a conference and have tests to grade. ugh. I long to do some more photosynthesis pages, but for now you will have to be content with the latest installment of Office Hours. I work very hard to look pained in this one.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, there is a group of folks on campus working on an ongoing web series called Office Hours. The most recent episode is out and I make my debut as Mark Deacon, lecturer in Russian History. As you will see, I won’t be quitting my day job.

Office Hours

Have you been curious about my office hours? I post them, but few students ever show. Well, just in case you like to enjoy your office hours at home, here is the first episode of a new web series called Office Hours. View it at your convenience. The whole schmear is a production of a stalwart band of folks here at Juniata College. Faculty, staff. students and alumni act, film, produce, direct and edit the whole shebang. I do the storyboards and make my screen debut in the next episode as Mark Deacon. Stay tuned!
