enjoy some milk

i’m going to be part of a couple new web collectives starting up this month. i’m super excited about both of them and can’t wait to announce what they are. for now though, here is an image i finished last night for one of ’em:


so last year i

became more public about my faith in Christ.
started to act on that.
started a christian comic anthology.
got mentioned on drawn!.
joined drawergeeks.
drew a backup story for a comic.
gained a new niece.
finally went to comic con (and met many friends!).
started a new job (which i love).
reached 127 strips of cow & buffalo.
published a book (yes! i did! more on that later!).
saw two of my best friends get married.
made many new friends both online and off.
drew everyday, 365 days in a row.
created more illustrations in one year then i have the entire time i’ve been out of college.
discovered pocky.
started up seed again (albeit slowly)
and created this blog.

it felt like a great 2006. and no doubt it all stems from those first two things i mentioned. chances are, troubled times are ahead, but i still have the feeling 2007 will be better then the last. :)

    mike, wow, what a list, you are 1 year ahead of things i would to be doing! slowly and surely i guess. no doubt the first 2 things on your list are the most important. and there are always troubled times ahead but it rests in that God is sovereign. hopefully my 2007 will be as productive as your 2006!

    How awesome! 2006 was a very life changing year for me, and God was part of that, every step of the way. I can`t wait to see more of your art. I like your gallery! ;)

    I second that, Mike!! Not all the stuff you did (how could I second that), but the 2007 thing (it being great). I’m proud to be one of the friends that you met online and in San Diego. I’m looking forward to another year of working with you.
