Activity


In addition to working in food and comics, I also make handmade, hand turned, custom wooden wands. I have access to a variety of responsibly harvested local wood as well as exotic woods such as zebra wood, purpleheart, leopard wood, and many others. Message me if you are interested. Commission base price starts at just $15 USD and varies depending on design elements and materials. I work with stone, bone, crystal, metal, fur, feathers, leather, and faux materials too.

I am working up to purchasing a Lathe so I can add more detail to my wands and shave some time off the process.

there are examples of my work in my gallery or in the reply below
Wand 3
Another commission this one is ash and its 13 inches long. like all my wands its hand turned and tooled using only 4 items. Just imagine if I had a lathe!

Hi! I'm Mike and I write, mostly comics (self-published, wrote and edited and lettered for Blue Collar Vigilante Studios and Tragic Entertainment), but also short stories, fan fiction, and a novel i have been working on since 2010, I also do lettering and editing for comics, I am not the greatest letterer, takes me too long I think as I make all my own balloons and try to preserve as much picture as possible, lettering is not my favorite thing. I have experience as a Chef, 2 years culinary school and off and on for the last 15 years doing fast food, high cuisine (French, Mediterranean, and Asian), catering, banquets, and once a retirement home, I won't say professional because that's never been my primary source of income, in this day and age there is no such thing as a professional in the food service industry unless they've held the same job for more than a decade and anything over 2 years is rare now. I have also been a voice actor (noncredit crowd work for a couple of shows produced out of a Dallas and Houston Texas licensing studio), stage actor, tech support for a major phone company, electronics specialist at a major retail outlet, produce monkey for a major grocery chain, Usher and Concession and Ticket desk at a few movie theaters, and from time to time i do brick, tile, stone, and concrete work and I'm surprisingly (to me anyway) really good at it. So, my work history has been thus construction, food, comics, food, comics, food, comics, tech support, food, comics, food, retail, food, voice actor, wrote an advertisement, food, stage actor, food, commercial, retail, food, voice actor, stage actor, food, wholesale, retail, food, food, stage hand, stage actor, food, food, stage actor, food, food, food, food, food, movie theater, stage actor, food, food, food, movie theater, food. I will not mention all the acting I did in school or the singing...yes best not to mention the singing. I wanted to be a rock star once but found my voice is better for country and got depressed.

Comics I wrote; Altregard (my first and was self-published then went to BCVS and then to Tragic Ent where it finally died), wrote Black Phoenix issue 3 for Tragic Entertainment, co-wrote Chronicles of the White Knight with Michael Brewer for Blue Collar Vigilante Studios (project may have become a novel by now), I did editing and lettering work for a while on Quany and FX for Tragic Ent (due to circumstances beyond my control I was unable to complete those projects, the usual issues facing Indy books), and my most recent project is my five issue story arc of Saviors of Gwerin which I am trying to self-publish,

My real loves are writing, acting, cooking, paranormal research, and music, and usually in that order.

I currently reside in North Little Rock Arkansas but may be making the move to Salem Wisconsin soon. I have severe ADHD that manifests mentally instead of physically, as you can see from my varied interests and amount of jobs over the last 15 years. Comic book work has been the only thing that I have been able to keep relatively steady with, though while I was able to get medication, I managed a few restaurants for over a year and worked a couple of retail gigs for more than a year. I held between 2 and 4 jobs at a time shortly after and during my last year of high school and first year of college and numerous odd jobs when unemployed.

I am a die hard heavy metal fanatic, was a member of the Metallica Fan Club for eight years and will be again. Was also a member of the Queen fan club, and Megadeth Fan club. I am also an amateur ghost hunter with Haunted Heritage Paranormal Society, current head of the Arkansas branch and looking for more members so far we got 3 here, but the Kentucky head branch has about a dozen and there are a few other branches, we maintain close ties with TAPS and Ghost Adventures Crew and some of us have ties with Penn State Paranormal Research Society (the group who did Paranormal State, not that new class shite, but the core series with Ryan Buell and crew).

I have no criminal history aside from some non insurance tickets that went unpaid during bouts of unemployment. I have no drug or alcohol addictions, yet I am a proponent of legalization of marijuana. My political views are all over the place and yet they manage not to conflict. Let me put it this way, when it comes to politics, I vote for what feels right, for who seems like the most qualified candidate for whatever position they are running for. I don't vote based on party affiliation because that's just stupid. I have no religion though I am studying Wicca and other nature based and shamanistic practices. My values are mostly christian as I was raised a combination of Catholic and Baptist. My philosophy is closer to Buddhism. In general as long as you're not hurting kids or being inconvenient to more than 3 people, do whatever you want. I live my life to have the most fun without causing anyone any harm and to have few regrets, thus far, I have succeeded. I look for amusement in everything and try to provide entertainment and amusement to everyone. I am a story teller and have many stories left to tell.

I play Dungeons and Dragons, pretty much any RPG where I don't have to use a gun on Xbox 360, Wii, and PS3, I am looking into a Xbox-one. I read a lot of sci-fi and fantasy and romance novels. I also draw and color both traditionally and digitally and have little confidence in either ability, but that doesn't keep me from trying.

I think that's enough about me.
