    Hi Mike,

    It's been a long time since I've been checking in on CA. Glad to see you still at it and what looks like getting some big-time commissions and work etc.

    On the prevoious page your show your studio and I'm wondering: How big are your monitors? They look like they're more than 27"?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jephyr

    unbelievably great work! I hope I can reach this level one day! your sketchbook is truly a great source for inspiration. Now most of the work that you do, is it freelance or do you work under someone?

    Your sketchbook is mindblowing! Wow!! Your acrylic paintings are amazing and have so much detail and the way you change your style is great. So much variety! The Steve Carell drawings made me smile as well, haha! This is very inspiring! Keep up the great work!

    whatttt! thats crazzzzzy! I would have assumed with 90% assurance that you worked under someone! WOW! knowing that your a freelancer is even more inspirational! By the way i like your studio set up! I dont know how long you have been drawing for but is there any advice you could give to a 20 yr old student working independently that has helped you along your road??

    Hey Mike, great stuff as always. I'd be honored if you stopped by my sketchbok and gave me a little advice maybe on how to improve. Ha, I know you get said that a lot I'm sure, but I figured I'd ask anyway. Keep inspiring

    Wow! Your stuff really blows my mind.

    Hey mikey, love your boardwalk empire sketches a few pages back, and those faux gulliver posters were hilarious, i loved them in the movie and it's cool to see them a bit more close up now. Also, thanks for that little walkthrough of your dumb n dumber jeff daniels portrait, pretty darn awesome.

    It goes without saying, keep up the good work.

    VESHKAU,
    Thank you!!

    JEPHYRX,
    Yeah, from traditional painting to the insane! Brushes, canvases and oils are a lot cheaper but just as fun.

    THE DISTANCE,
    Thank you man, and your painting of the guitarist rocks, no pun intended.

    haha, grotesque work! The guy behind the gasmask in the top left shot looks mighty realistic compared to the rest. Is he a friend of yours?
