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.
Not to nit-pick nit-picking, BUT that's wrong.

The flag and his hat are moving in the proper direction. I know your thinking because the wind is at his back it should be that way, however, have you ever seen a boat at full tilt where the flags where flying in the opposite direction? The sail boat is cutting through the air, which would blow everything but the sail back. Kind of hard to explain, but it works, he got it right.

btw, really nice illustrations!

I see Threadless is printing "Some College Somewhere!" Congratulations, it's a very clever design. It should be selling like hotcakes. HOTCAKES.

Thanks Tony, yeah it seems to be selling well. The girl's Tees are already sold out. (I don't have any idea how many they make.) I hope it gets reprinted so I can get more copies for my family.

I like em, they reminds me of childrensTV from the time when I was in the right age for it. So they are for me good memories with a twist. ;)

Geez, Mike, you just get better and better. You're definitely one of my all time favorites on this forum. That Judas drawing was particularly amazing.

Thanks Reagan and everyone. I appreciate the positive feedback. I'm really glad that Judas thing turned out so well, I'm now getting little jobs every two weeks from the same magazine. (It's a small Chrisitan magazine.) But I'm glad for the work.

Oh yeah, the Judas illo is wonderful! Great use of texture and fabrics and objects. The new material is great too. I especially liked the rough sketch-line up of various characters. Looking mighty good!

I actually like your character designs a lot as well as the textured work.
Your line work is really cool!
