Awsome stuff Mike. Dig the shirt designs. Would love to see a comic with your little thief hobbit guy. The skinny shadow and highlights flattens it more than a thicker highlight and shadow would.

Thanks. I'm glad that you like the texture. I have this anti-texture thing that I am trying to get over by forcing myself to do work with these textures I have scanned. I end up liking the results but I think I just feel more in control when I work with flat color.

Anyway, thanks. I hope to post some new stuff soon.

love the 'some college somewhere' one.
this is kinda nit-picky, but in the sail boat one, the wind direction is inconsistent. the flag at the top of the mast and maybe the guy's hat would be blowing towards the sail, not away from it.

I just realized that. I should get around to fixing that. Thanks.

The poster for the comedy group is really great! It's the sort of poster I'd stop by and look at. I love the design of it.
Agree with the rest about the somewhere college. ;) Its cool. Also like the hanging monster around the neck. I'd like a shirt like that! :)

These are excellent, Mike! Your t-shirt designs are radical, I'll have get one. :D The Some College Somewhere -shirt rocks!

Oh yeah, and what's this Happy Hour Heros thing? It's funny since we're thinking of putting up a firm here and one of the name propositions is Happy Hour Artists... :D
