The first responsibility of the Muslim is as teacher. That is his job, to teach. His first school, his first classroom is within the household. His first student is himself.

H. Rap Brown

People go into cartooning because they're shy and they're angry. That's when you're sitting in the back of a classroom drawing the teacher.
Our education system is increasingly embracing a black-and-white way of thinking, in which 'learning' and 'play' are diametrically opposed.
