So you may or may not know this, but Blake is really creative and artistic. If you ask him to draw, he usually refuses (he says he’s just a tracer); however, there’s been more than one occasion when he’s shown up with something over-the-top and just plain good.
Take, for example, our P1/P2 English camp last year. He didn’t come to the poster making party but when he showed up in the morning, his “Rabbits” poster was 3-D and FANCY:
Blake has also been making a slew of materials for his classes at Suratpittaya, but most of you haven’t seen them because the majority of us work at Thida.
I came home one night and he was in the middle of making a giant map for his upcoming directions lesson. There were over 23 numbered locations on that map, but of course the most important one was in the top-left corner: “That’s my mansion,” he said. He was cutting out a jacuzzi to put in the back.
This is only a small slice of other Blake-themed materials he’s created. The inspiration for this post is the following set of pictures:
These are what went on the giant Blake’s World die that he created for the English Camp we did this past weekend.
I may or may not be using his computer while he’s teaching a class at a rubber factory, so he might be mad when he finds out I wrote this post and put in all those silly pictures…
But, let me just state for the record that this is a celebration of his creativity and a call to everyone to step up your game! May we all find a way to incorporate ourselves into our classes with a lasting legacy 🙂
