Hey Mike, I think you should make prints and t-shirts of your 2-colour work. I'd buy them up for sure!- Diana
Mike,I saw this one when I was over Saturday. I kept thinking, "I haven't seen that on the blog yet, have I?" Another great piece of art.
Another damn nice one Michael. I love the variety of tones and textures you're able to convey with the simple green.
lovely work...great range of values...even the graffiti is good.
Hi Mike, great work as usual :-)I have tagged a recent photo of mine as Choesque in your honor. Its not that great of a photo, but I just wanted to photograph some alleyways in my brother town when they reminded me of your work.http://www.flickr.com/photos/sakraft1/170041981/
your work is absolutely beautiful.
A real stunner.
YEP...prints would be very cool! Anuder amazing illo Mike!-Hart

MichaelHappened upon your site after seeing you post on one of the boards, and man, I absolutely love your Toronto series. Are you working with photo ref or are you doing these from live memory. Bobby
Mike,It's time to publish a book of these. Your back alley drawings could be an amazing historical record. It sounds like an Arts Council no brainer!
Thanks, Bob! Glad you liked them. I'll post more later. As for photos, yes I do use reference. For these drawings, I'll take photos on site and draw some sketches, then I'll draw the final from those in my studio. I find that I don't remember all the interesting little details which are so important if I just draw from memory.
They are great, I did a series of environment designs for an X-box game (which I can't name just yet) based on neighborhoods where I live in NJ. Your work is what I wanted to push for what I did, but the client felt it was too realistic. They wanted more stylized, which IMO killed the whole feel of the project. I should let them see your work and make them realize their mistake... :) Again, congrats on the beautiful work.
Really great contrast. Fab work!
I love these drawings in ink-markers. They make the hair on the back of my legs stand up.
