Ballon Boy

Photobucket

Actually inspired by my nephew who got caught up in a bunch of balloons. It just so happened to be a few days before all of the balloon boy shenanigans.

Crusaders and Haters

Photobucket

Photobucket

Here are two pieces I did for the Crusaders and Haters show in Culver City last month. The theme was Superheroes and Villains in American Pop Culture. I had a lot of fun making these little guys, and am probably going to do a few more versions if I ever have the time. They're now available as prints in my Shop, and you can also check out some pictures of the show here!

You can find this guy as a print in my Shop.

Little Pilot Skullington


I love love LOVE hummingbirds. My Grandma and great Grandma always had them around their house, and I always loved watching them. If you read up on them, you will find they live quite a tough life, and are constantly trying to stay alive. As a bird, I think they look awesome, so this all started with me wanting to paint a hummingbird, and somewhere along the way, it took a turn for the worst.

Now available as a print in my Shop!

Rocketbird and El Batman

Photobucket

Photobucket

Couple recent things. I've been inspired to do some new stuff, so I pooped these things out.

Rocketbird is an old design I had that got printed at Threadless. I wanted to update it...

El Batman is an idea I've had for a bit, but I never got past sketching it out... "The famous Mexican Wrestler, El Batman. Urban Legend is that he doubled as a vigilante, cleaning up the streets of his city at night, but no proof of that has ever been found. His current whereabouts are unknown".

A Democrat and a Republican

Photobucket

There are so many extremely inspiring Obama portraits, I wanted to take a crack at it. I don't think it has the same iconic-ness that Shepard Fairey's does...but I'm still happy with how it came out.

Photobucket

This was for a group show called "Hollywood, DC" in Hollywood. The theme was mixing politics with Hollywood. Too many Hollywoods...OK I'm done......Hollywood...

WAHOO! My piece on G4TV



So I don't get any real publicity, since nobody will know who I am from the video, but it still makes me happy to have my piece in it :P

Mickey Mouse


Oh Mickey Mouse, another character which I have deep affection and utter hate for. Steamboat Willy is about as cool as it gets, whereas today's Mickey Mouse just doesn't cut it.

Done for the weekly at Cloud9

Super Mario World


I wanted to do my own version of the SNES classic, Super Mario World. I've always hated the Yoshi design, but also think he's a great gameplay element. And Mario gets more family friendly by the year, so I felt it was time for some grittiness. Hope you guys dig it!

And the original, for reference sake.

Dominance War - Henry

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Here was my entry for Dominance War III. A bunch of guys and I from work competed, and hopefully we can place. Regardless I had a lot of fun.

Here is his story -

When Henrys parents were killed by the machines when he was 3, he was left to grow up orphaned, homeless and alone. Until one day when he found a ring made of bone. He was unsure of its purpose but figured it was nothing more than creepy decoration, and at least equal to the value of a couple good meals, so he kept it in the best place he could think of, his finger!

Shortly after, Henry started to feel extremely strong, his empty stomach felt full, his energy was endless. This increased as the days went on, until he became extremely powerful, with the agility and strength to defeat giants with ease. Henry knew it was the ring, and became extremely cautious due to its fragility, His greed took over and he quickly and crudely build a glove around his hand and arm to protect it. The weight didn’t matter as he had no problem lifting it. He didn’t even make it removable, as he wanted to make sure his ring was always safe

Soon after, Henry discovered the true source of his power, the Skullies! Curious, child like creatures that he had unknowingly summoned by wearing the ring. It spooked him at first, but eventually he got used to it, and they began to form a bond.

It wasn’t all good though, Henry began to change, he noticed half of his body starting to decay. He knew, the Skullies knew, it was the ring. He had to choose a path. Having a sense of friendship and family for the first time, Henry decided to keep the ring, regardless of its effects on his body. He knew he could remain powerful if he protected the Skullies, and the Skullies followed him wherever he went.

Henry realized that his power had to be put to use, so he joined the war to fight the machines, and avenge his parents.

Shirts & Prints OH MY!



Photobucket

When I'm not doing more serious art stuff ( haha me? serious?) I like to make little cute and creepy things. I used to sub things to Threadless, and much to my disliking, they never got printed...after years of people asking me to print some stuff up, I finally did!

You can buy my shirts and prints on Etsy (until I get www.sirmitchell.com running, which could be a while)

Anyways, if you wanna check it out. Please feel free! SirMitchell Etsy Shop

X-wing Pilots

Photobucket

Photobucket

Portraits of my future wife and I. We've always dreamed of blowing up the Death Star together, and this is as close as we will ever get.

Christmas Card!

Photobucket

Have a UNIQUE Holiday!

Snake!

Photobucket

So to make a frustrating story short: Gamepro paid me to do a cover illustration for them. Which led to extreme excitement, since I had a subscription to it when I was a kid. What I gave them was similar to this, but more saturated, and no cigarette. What ended up on the cover was an edited image with brown skin and bright blue glowing vampire eyes. They also put it on a white background with Mario, and a bunch of other games coming out next year.

If you're super curious, here's a scan of the actual cover [ here ] Makes me upset every time I see it, but nothing I can do now except complain.

Santa Fe Reporter

Photobucket

This was a cover for the Santa Fe Reporter. It was for a story about a Furry radio station in Santa Fe, and how furries cope with everyday life. If you know anything about furries, you probably know too much. It was a fun piece to do, and I like how it came out!

LAWHEEGEE

Photobucket

This is another quick thing for the RavenSoft Art Blog activity. The theme was Retro Games. I used to love Luigi, but more recently I feel that Nintendo has made him into a real whimp, so I made him a bit more badass... or something.

Now you see it, Now you see it again!

Photobucket

This is a redo of one of my older pieces. It was going to be for a gallery show, but it's unclear whether or not that will even happen.
