So... right, a blog. Something that I am supposed to update once in a while, and it's been, a while.

Anywho, I have been busy, I just haven't posted anything for a while so here are some of the things I have been working on:

#1: Being a dad. My son Eli rocks! He has grown so much already and I just can't wait to see what he is going to do next.

#2: Some initial kid's Tshirt designs see here below. They were rather preliminary and rather simple artistically as I was aiming to do them in only one or two colors. I don't even know if they are cool or not. I may do some more if I feel like it, and if I suddenly get really ambitious maybe try to print/market them.






#3 is a kids book from the sample spread above. I am having a lot of fun doing this one. I hope to finish the book in the next few months and so I will continue to leave some teaser pics for it and keep you up to date on the process.

#4 was for a very good friend of mine who is starting up a software company. You can check out the teaser page here:
Launch CMS.
They have some very cool ideas for web software (and more) that are in development and I was able to do some fun icons/graphics for it. They have a super cool blog as well.


#5 Check out my younger brother
Darryl's webblog. No, it's not something that I have been up to, but there are a few things he has been up to lately. He's been doodling much like me for most of his life, but in the past few years he has taken some time off and is now getting back into it as well as painting (you should see those if he would only post those!). Now he just got a wacom at Christmas and has never used digital media until now! He is super talented and will be surpasing me shortly - gives me some motivation to improve as well.


On a less related to what-I've-been-doing-lately-list, the
Legendary Anthology that I joined a while back is complete (though the blog isn't updated at the moment - Matt is a super super busy guy) and the hunt for publishers is near. Matt says that he is hoping that it will be done and printed even by this fall, maybe even for the San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC I think). He says the finished product looks great, and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy! I hope that I can be involved in another of these anothology type comics again in the future - though I definitely have to do my Chuck Chance as well, though at this rate it will be done when Eli graduates.

So yeah, that's what I have been up to the last few months. As again, I will try to update this thing a little more often. Thanks to those of you who have stopped by in the last few months and made comments. I really appreciate them.

Take care,

-Mike

Hey! Great post. Those t-shirts are really fun. The contract work out alright for you? Looks like they're going really well for starters.

Hey! I thought you were missing! Haven't heard from you in awhile. I guess that makes sense, with all the baby goo and all. haha. (hows that going by the way!? oh Hi to natalie for me!) I like your new work, and would love to help you with Photoshop textures if you like, I'm doing a lot of PS work now that I am teaching. I could send you some awesome Tutorials. I think you're fantastic! What are you up to lately?
