Pinned post

Hi, everyone! I'm Mike. I'm a professional artist / character designer / illustrator and I love creating whimsical, colorful character-based illustrations. I work mostly in games (mobile and tabletop these days.) I'm from Oakland, CA, USA.
Here are a handful of my favorite pieces. I'll be posting more - both older images and new ones as I create them.

I have to confess, I've been in a little bit of an art slump lately. But I found this sketch for the Trinquette challenge from two months ago and finished it up as a skating demon. It's based on a photo of skater Oumi Janta.

Rushing off to protect the frontier town, it's Sheriff Saguaro!

This is my entry for this month's Character Design Challenge (on Facebook) whose theme is walking plants.

Another post! Also a stellar example of why I can't manage to do one a day: I spent ages on this waffling between what she should be wearing and then once I'd committed to that, what color palette to use. The second image shows a handful of examples of different color palettes; all told I made about a dozen versions.

The image is based on a pose from @/adorkastock on FB, IG and Twitter.

Hey, it's my first official post of the year! The official prompt list has as it's first prompt so here's my worker, a mermaid lifeguard. At the rate I'm going, I should finish all 31 by NEXT MerMay! :D (j/k, I'm not doing 31, I'll just do whichever ones strike my fancy and that I have time for.)

This one was based on a pose from @/jookpubstock on Twitter.

More pre-alpha cropped screenshots of our game Wicked Lands. For those interested it's an indie, turn based, roguelite, strategy game we're developing (Hugging Dragons and myself).

Like the sound of it? Please go to Steam and search Wicked Lands to wishlist it 😊.

Hello to lots of new followers! It's the first of May, and do you know what that means? (JoCo fans, dont' answer!) It's "MerMay," the month when lots of artists draw lots of pictures of mermaids! I never draw one a day like some artists, but here are two mermaid pin-ups that I made last year. (Yes, in addition to funny animals, I also draw colorful pin-ups, sorry if that puts off any recent followers expecting only quirky character designs.)

Hi, again! I'm Mike, and I'm sharing some more art I've done. In my previous post, I realized that while I introduced myself, I didn't add the appropriate intro hashtags... so once more with feeling!

I like to draw fun, stylized, whimsical characters and situations. I work in games - in fact the couple on a bench was done as the landing page for game studio Tether Games (my current employer.)
