I thought I'd better do a Gerard dream for this one as I seemed to draw a blank on anything else. I was also confused as to which medium to I did two drawings this week in different mediums...I could call one of them a rough and one of them finished, but I won't as neither are finished and both are fairly rough!

Some thoughts I had and sketched whilst thinking about this weeks Illustration Friday word...'Teacher'. I don't necessarily agree with the saying that I wrote, or even know who wrote it, but because I hated the school system when I was a young tearaway/hooligan/ Mum used to amuse me by saying 'He who can....does, He who can't.... teaches.'....she knew that it would be something that would make me feel good whilst putting up with another days education. The first drawing just landed on the paper like that..I think it does say something about teaching though.
