Hey everybody! I just wanted to thank all of you that have come and checked out my art and helped get me to that 30k mark:) I'm definitely very appreciative of all your kind words and crits! Here's hoping for 30k more!
  In other news, I'm flying down to Philly tomorrow morning to attend Wizard World East this weekend. I'll be there all weekend, so stop by the Aspen booth and say hi! I'll have original art for sale, and I'll also be doing free sketches(a limited amount each day though). Hope to see all of you there!

Hey people! I don't know about all of you, but in general, I hate politians. I'm of the opinion that most of them are corrupt, both Democrat and Republican alike. So, a buddy of mine recently turned me on to this guy Ron Paul. He's running under the Republican ticket, but his politics are really more in line with Libertarian/Constitutionalist ideals. He's also the only candidate that believes the troops should IMMEDIATELY return from Iraq. He's definitely a darkhorse candidate, but he's got quite a grass-roots following going on, due to the fact that his ideas are refreshing, and he's one of the few candidates that isn't in the pocket of big-business and special interest groups. You know how most politians all sound like they're feeding you a line of BS, even though they may(or may not) make it sound smooth? I totally don't get that sense with this guy...He actually sounds honest! Hard to believe, but thats the impression I get. Anyway, I know politics is a topic a lot of people are passionate about, but I'm not trying to start a giant debate on my journal, I'm just trying to raise awareness about a candidate that I feel should get more attention. So, I'd suggest going on Youtube and looking up his name as there are many videos of him debating the other candidates, and you can also go here to learn more: www.ronpaul2008.com Hope everyone is doing well!

...Stand up for your rights! This is kind of non-art-related, but I think its extremely important for everyone to know about this if you don't already. Basically, the FDA is trying to put in effect a law that makes it illegal for you to obtain any vitamins, supplements, super-foods, or even raw juices(seriously!) without a doctor's prescription! Here's an article with more info: www.newstarget.com/021789.html For a little while longer(1 week), we have the right to voice our opinions about this proposed bill, and I highly suggest you do so. Personally, as a health-conscious individual who doesn't particularly trust big pharmaceudical companies or the FDA(remember, they have approved TONS of drugs that have later been recalled due to causing horrific health problems, including death), this bill scares the hell out of me. Anyway, I'm not the kind of person that usually "spams" like this, but I think its an important issue, and if you do as well, please voice your displeasure here: tinyurl.com/2u7ghc trust me, it will only take like 30 seconds, and its a way to excersize the rights that, at least for now, we still have in this country. Peace yall.

Hey People, just a little update, I'm going to be moving to San Francisco in May...I can't wait! I'm really excited about the whole thing. I'm newly single, and ready to mingle! Ohh yeah! But seriously, I think its going to be a great experience. I'm moving in with a buddy(www.bolognafingers.deviantart.com) who's attending Academy of Art University, and I'm planning to attend a class a semester eventually, just to brush up on my figure drawing, etc...
  Also, I'm now on myspace, so if you wanna look me up and add me go for it. I'm definitely in need of friends on there as I only have like 6 or something:) Anyway, thats all I have to say really, but I thought I'd let everyone know I'm making my return to Cali soon so LOOK OUT! peace!

hey people, just wanted to say THAAAAAANKSSSSS!!!! for all of you that voted for me last round, i got the most votes by a little over 100, which was unexpected, but definitely cool. this round, i'm a little more worried to be honest as to whether i'll make it through. i had to really crank out the pages, and the quality suffered a bit i'm afraid. that said, i would REALLY appreciate if any of you feel like voting for me tomorrow at noon. here's the link: www.comicbookidol.com thanks!!!!!!

hey peeps!

its been a bit since i wrote in here, but i just wanted to say that everything went great in san diego. it was the most fun i've had a LONG time. met up with a bunch of people i know from online, and they were all cool. i dont get to hang out with other comic artists that much, so it was really nice to be around people that have the same goals as me. i also got a chance to talk to some industry folks, and they had pretty good things to say about my work, though there are definitely still some rough spots. they were all very helpful, and i was surprised at how well they reacted to my stuff. wierd. anyway, everything went well, and i'll DEFINITELY be going back next year, more prepared, and hopefully ready to get some work:)-MiCAH
hey everyone!

heya people!

well, i just purchased my plane ticket for san diego, so its now a definite that i'll be attending the san diego comicon this july. i'll be there for the whole four days from the 16th-20th, and i'm really looking forward to it! i've been to the pittsburg con, the wizard world philly con, and the wizard world chicago con, all of which were really cool, but the san diego con is supposed to be the biggest in the states i think, so i'm looking forward to great things! i'll be hanging with some friends when i get there and also pimping my work around to anyone who will look, but i wont be too busy to say "hey", so if anyone recognizes me or something or sees my work, be sure to holla! anyway, thanks everyone for checking out my stuff on here, and thanks to all of you, i hope to hit 5,000 hits before too long:) see ya!!!!
