Tabula Candida

Tabula: a writing tablet

Candidus: gleaming white

Thus, Tabula Candida: a whiteboard, which is where this all started.

I teach history and when I teach I like to doodle on the whiteboard.  Sometimes I like to illustrate points in class with little stick-figure drawings.  When giving an exam, I’ll draw something silly on the board to ease the tension.  That’s where some of these cartoons came from.  Others are just ideas that I found rattling around in my brain while reading or grading papers.  Here they are for your enjoyment.

  1. Hey Tabula Candida!
    I just wanted to let you know that I’ve nominated you for the One Lovely Blog award. I quite enjoy your doodles, and I hope you’ll accept.
    Details can be found here. Thanks, and Merry Christmas!

  2. Been following and forwarding you for a few years. Changing my email though and don’t want to lose you. I need a geeky laugh on a regular basis. Bring on the esoteric orations of pedantic erudition.
