troybillustration asked: i saw your stuff at the MoCCA Art Fest a couple weeks ago, your stuff is great!.. I was wondering how you create your pieces?
Hi! I paint using water color techniques with Sumi Ink and a little white Gouache on water color paper. I spend most of the time planning, sketching and doing studies before I start with the ink as there’s no going back if you make a mistake with ink.
tapeton asked: Hi Mike, I love your illustrations. I was wondering if the prints in your store come with the address of your website or is it just a watermark for the online gallery? You can reply privately if you prefer. Thanks a lot and amazing work, man!
Hi! No the prints come unblemished by my web address, that’s just to make sure people know where to go if the image is found out of context. All the print is marked with is a small signiture ;)
jadephelle asked: Heya Mike! I just bought my tickets for MoCCAFest! I'm coming up JUST TO SEE YOU (and Jillian Tamaki and the Warrior Woman zine :-P and maybe some other stuff). Love your recent work! Will you have prints of the Hunters Wife and/or the Knights Errant? Wanna do some trades :-D?
I’ll have them all! And yes lets trade! Exclamation marks!
