Ready for the BIG NEWS regarding my new project with The Story Supply Co.?! 


Well, here it is! I’ve developed a line of sketchbooks in conjunction with the folks at Story Supply Co.! Each sketchbook will have a full wrap around cover by me. I’ve designed it around a two-word theme, in this case it’s “War and Peace”.

This project is very special to me. Growing up a very poor kid the one thing that changed the course of my life was drawing. When I entered the art program at William Penn High School one of the first things given to me was a free sketchbook. It may have seemed like a small thing to my teachers, but to me it meant the world. I filled up sketchbook after sketchbook, and they always had a new one to replace the old. 


Now I draw for a living and I’m in the position to return the favor. For every set of “War and Peace” sketchbooks sold Story Supply Co. and I will donate one free sketchbook to a young artist. Our first batch of books is destined for my old High School art program, run by my one-time teacher (and one of my heroes) Joan Inman. 


If you follow me on social media you know how much I love to sketch. I wanted to make a sketchbook I’d lover to draw in. Story Supply and I have worked hard to make this sketchbook as great as it can be. I got to hand pick paper stocks with them, hammer out the design, and let my mind loose on the coolest covers I could think of. Story Supply is putting it all together and have nailed down every detail, down the color of the staples holding this beauty together! 


I hope you will too, and that you’ll support us on this crazy new venture we’ve cooked up! 


Thanks!

Best,

Mike


PS - I don’t often do commissions, and rarely attend cons, so pre-order early if you want one of the sketch options!
