As my patrons know, every day two new Crowtoons are shown on my Patreon page (here). And so normally if you want to see them, you'll need to be one of those wonderful folks who choose to support their grateful cartoonist. Thanks, guys!!
However, today's offering is one that's special enough that I wanted to show it more widely. It appeared in the Chronicle of Higher Education, which was nice, but what's more interesting is that it shows me doing my thing at the blackboard, as I've done for years and years. And ... rather than showing some random algebra on the board, as is traditional in most blackboard cartoons, what you'll see if you look closely is some fancy pants maths. Symbolic math. More specifically, excerpts from a paper of mine, one that helped get me tenure.
My wife liked it so much that she secretly made a print of it and framed it for my birthday. And it's up on the wall in my studio, and I'm literally looking at it right now as I type.
So there you go. More than just the gag this time.
