What can I say, summer's been busy. So hello again to those two of you who still check my blog once in a while. I've been working on a few different things that have left me not drawing as much as I would like. I have also just finished a project for a cool museum out of Philadelphia, and I hope to have permission to post it here some day. It was the largest project I have ever worked and I really mean that. Two illustrations each over 18 feet tall and quite wide too! Needless to say my computer was really strained and put to the test, and once again I am happy to say I love my Mac.

So anyways, back to business. I figured what better way to spend the afternoon getting back into the swing of things (especially on a Friday) than to participate in the new Illustration Friday topic. Routine is the word. I think for most people, work is a routine. Many people do the same thing every day, 9-5 (or longer). Taxi drivers came to mind for me (well the seven dwarfs did first but I didn't like how it was going). Driving all day must start to become pretty routine for these guys, but at the same time, every client must bring a slightly different experience or at least a different destination. So I've said enough. Been so long since I blogged I am now just babbling.



Have a great weekend everyone!
Take care,

-Mike

Hello from England!

I have come upon your blog for the first time and am intrigued to know what 'Illustration Friday' is all about. You have done some fabulous images for IF - is it simply a framework to force you to do something new and different at least once a week, or is there more to it??

Hi again,

I have signed up and also put a bit on my blog about it. Hope you don't mind, but I have taken the liberty of using you as an example. Take a look: http://lynnechapman.blogspot.com

Love the illustrations!
