Website Preview

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I still have 5 commissions to do before Christmas so I have to get crack-a-lackin'. I'm working on one now and won't be done in time to post so I'm giving a little preview to my new website. I'm in the process of designing it in Photoshop. Stay tuned for that in early '08.

Next on my list of things to cover is this whole tagging thing. I'm usually not into forwards or chain letters but his one is different. I have seen so many fantastic new artists from seeing others tagged. A great artist, Karen Appleton, tagged me so here it goes.

1. When I was five I cried when my cousin (who was older) colored better then me. Who's crying now?
2. My second year in college I was offered a tattoo apprenticeship and an internship at a design company at the same time. I wonder how things would be different if I took the tattoo route.
3. I am a paintaholic but love nothing more then laying around doing nothing with my awesome wife.
4. I have painted all 260ish paintings at my kitchen table.
5. I am a father to be.

Here are my tags. I know they've been tagged before but they are true influences on me and my paintings.Christopher Stott, Neil Hollingsworth, Julian Merrow-Smith, Karin Jurick, Alvin Richard

Looks like a very clean and elegant design for your website - very much in alignment with your work. Can't wait to see the rest.

Hey Mike,
I will answer your tag in the following days, Thanks. Congrats on the news that you will soon be a Dad, it will be one of the most fulfilling experience of your life. It's like re-living your childhood all over again through this little person....only better.

I have to agree with Alvin. Having children really does feel like re-living childhood. My son is now 5 and daughter 3. I've been swept away into imaginary places that I recall once visiting before a few decades ago.

Congratulations on parenthood, painting and avoiding the tattoo route.
