Mike Returns

When I was working on the art piece for Pixar Times, I created this face and it felt like he was singing rather than telling his jokes. But since I really liked the face I didn't want it to go to waste so I quickly worked this up. I loved this scene at the end where he makes it on the cover of a magazine and the UPC code covers his entire face - and he's ecstatic!


Pixar Times Baby!!!

So I happened upon a blog not too long ago called The Pixar Times ( follow at @ThePixarTimes). It's run by a fan of all things Pixar (who isn't?). He created a section called Pixart where illustrators/fans submit fan art basically. Well, that portion is run by a super talented dude, Jarrod Maruyama (check him out here and follow him via Twitter at @jmaruyama).

Long story short, they allowed me to create a piece for their site. Check it yo! There's a mini interview here:

Thanks again guys for the opportunity!

Let the Countdown Begin!!

I love nerds, especially talented nerds. So I'm super stoked about getting my first table at any sort of convention. My wife and I will be sharing a table at the Chicago Comic Con (Wizard World) in August. If it goes well, we'll probably look into getting a table at the San Diego show.

Even though there's a lot of time still, there's a lot I want to do. I want to show up with some stuff other than just prints. What else? It's a secret!! You'll just have to keep tuning in from time to time. If there's any pieces here you'd like to see as prints for sale in the future, let me know. I'll definitely have them at Comic Con.

I'll also have my latest large project for sale which is a book I'm doing for a charitable cause. Check out that blog here: I'm about a week or two away from completion!

So keep checking back from time to time and I'll have more info about the show and stuff I'm planning to sell. If you're in the area be sure to stop by!
