Radioactive Cat

A few days ago one of our cats went in for a thyroid treatment involving radiation. I made these to cheer up Victoria while her cat was away.

On the road

I'm on the road in Birmingham, Alabama meaning that I'm posting from the road. I guess I had that in mind when I did this sketch. I've always lusted after cafe racers and motorcycles in general, but LA seems like a terrible place to enjoy them.





Have you seen...


the cat circus is coming to LA! I'm totally going!


there's a Shepard Fairey show opening on the 16th. Sounds cool!


Lebowski Fest! Time to get a white russian and find a rug that ties the room together.

Powered by Coffee

We're currently in Seattle for the Emerald City Comic Con (booth 701 to be specific). I'm always excited to be here because of all the amazing coffee shops. I spend a lot of time brewing my own and trying to figure out how to make the perfect cup. Here's something I whipped up for the show and for people who love coffee as much as I do.



Also if you happen to be heading to ECCC, here's a handy map to help you find us. Booth 701!

Titanfall

I really love video games even thought I'm super terrible at them. This week I've started playing Titanfall and its amazing. Here's a quick sketch I had time for when I wasn't playing.

New Developments at eca-la.com




Hello All,

As you may have noticed, I’ve neglected posting here for some time. However, good news!


I and my lovely wife, have joined our blogs. We are posting together on our site www.eca-la.com or www.eca-la.com/blog for the blog. Starting on January 1st, 2014, we’re going to go to a new blog format. We will post three times a week - Monday, Wednesday, & Friday.

Mondays will be devoted to articles, tutorials, thoughts on art and the industry, artist interviews, and reader questions & answers.

Wednesdays & Fridays will be the days we’ll share art - Wednesday will be Victoria and Friday will be me.

Each month will be centered around a core idea. (Ira Glass voice) 2014 will begin with the theme - Tabula Rasa or literally “blank slate.” We’ll explore this idea different ways each of the five weeks of January -

  • In the beginning - Our start as artists (interview/podcast)
  • 2013 in review & what lies ahead for 2014
  • Q&A - If you have a question(art, life, design, the industry) you’d like our input on, please visit http://eca-la.com/whats-on-your-mind/ and fill out the form to submit your questions. Questions will be reviewed & you will be contacted if your question is selected.
  • Fill the blank page - starting a new project(tutorial)
  • Don’t break the chain - Strategies for keeping your resolutions along with ours for the year

I invite you to join us on this grand adventure.

onward,
Mike
