A Democrat and a Republican


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.


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...

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




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!


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 running, which could be a while)

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