teacher

One of the greatest rewards of teaching is when students find their own special way to show their appreciation.  On my last day of teaching at Sacred Heart's Sophie Scholars summer program, one of my students gave me a Pudgy Puppy Zombie Dog doll that she had spent weeks hand-sewing.  My heart instantly melted.

As a reminder, here's the original Pudgy Puppy Zombie Dog:
I showed kids the process I used to create Pudgy Puppy to teach them the basics of cartoon design.  I think my student did a pretty good job at replicating him don't you think? ;)
