i love how easy you make it look (mark of a true master), despite the fact i know there's a tremendous amount of hard work in each drawing.
Wow!! This is a pretty amazing SB!! And from the sounds of it you work VERY fast too.
Love the ? super-hero and dynamic duo below it on pg 42.
Lots of variety...I could go on...................
Hey JORDAN85, Thanx man.
SWAMPDIGGER, thank you, trust me the deadlines are crazy!

Hi MIYCKO, thanx man, sometimes an old rusty machine.
Thank you EXODUSPARADIGM, i've been doing this for a few years.
Thank you JEPHYR X, in this business you have to, sometimes i can bang out 15 to 20 concept sketches in a day.
The chinese new year is just coming..lets all keep it up``
Hi UNNAMED.DEVICE, if you have any questions you always email me or give me a buzz at the studio 818 . 953 . 9121.
Hi LEETHOVEN, we have already started with a large steaming bow of shark fin soup!
Wonderful updates once again Mike. It is awesome how you have such a variation in edges with your some of your drawings.
The main thing I enjoy with your work though is the compositions. All are so different, yet all visually appealing and interesting. Your work leaves me with a craving for more.

Heck, you're good. I love your work on Borderlands. I bought the game, fun, but I think it would have looked a lot better if the art style had kept closer to yours. Your vision had a lot more life to it. Keep it up!
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...33#post2548933 I have a sketchbook.
WoW man, I really loved the ideas for those maquettes that they display in the theaters (don't know how you call them), I never knew who desinged those. What a funny job!!
That really made may day.

HANNY HONEYMOON, Thank you, and you have some wonderful paintings and drawings in your SB.
AMIANNA, thank you, and i bet if you posted an address, you would get a zillion Valentines from all the wonderful folks on concept.org, my self included. By the way you also have quite a wonderful SB!
THANK YOU, BASHAM!!
Thank you LENNON, as the saying goes, "Just a taxi plying for hire".
DARKSIDE, thank you!!
VEREHIN thanx man!
I'm now beginning to have an unbearable want for your work. No, a need.
So glad I stumbled over this sketchbook. I don't have much to say, apart from I love the overexposed look you got on the boys face. Looks really dynamic.
Oh, and I love how badass the serve and protect picture is.
And books would be awesome, make sure you advertise it to me well. I often miss chances to buy art books, which I shouldn't; and yours I definitely shouldn't.
Thank you HUEY YENG!
Hey FRASERMcT, thank you for all your kind words. The first book will be out sometime around march 10th, the second book will be released on or about june 10th, and the third book by about august 20th, as for the Star Wars book, thats is still in negotiations.
Hi DON AIKIDO, got your message and thank you for your interest, i went to Otis Parson for a year then transfered to Art Center, as for my skills, it's mostly self taught. After school i got lucky and landed a six figure gig in entertainment advertising, i think i was about twenty seven, I'll post a few more pic's of my studio and how i set up my workspace before i start a project in this case a painting.
