2016 Highlights PT.6: Radcliffe!

Down to the last few highlights. of 2016!

This one involves a book I worked on YEARS ago, Machine Teen. It's OK if you never heard of it ;-)

I got to co-create a bunch of characters with my writer and partner Marc Sumerak, and one was the evil genius Holden Radcliffe. Imagine my surprise when I found out he'd be a character on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!



I'm thrilled to get to contribute to the Marvel Cinematic universe, and actor John Hannah is doing an amazing job of playing Holden. 

Very, very cool :-)

best,
Mike

2016 Highlights PT.5: Iron Max

A few months back I got to meet this courageous little boy "Iron Max" and his sister Zoe. Max has overcome some hard times with his hemophilia, but he's got a will of iron! He and his sister put together a great little calendar to raise money and awareness for the disease. We met a few months back while at the Marvel offices in New York. I got draw these two as their favorite heroes. Seriously awesome kids! 
Here's a pic of us that apparently appeared on NBC news.




Please consider supporting these little heroes in their fight. More info here.

2016 Highlights PT.4: Ten Years!


That's right, one of the Highlights (at least for me) of 2016 was realizing I've had this blog going for ten years!

Here was the first post...


I confess, it was not much of a start. 


Still, it's crazy to think that ten years later I'd still be at it. I always kinda thought of the blog as a temporary place for my work till I set up a "proper website". Funny how things work out. 

Here are some highlights from the last ten years. 




















































Thanks for sticking around!

best,
Mike
