Sokmunsters!



so, along with my now working on the next "Herobear and the kid" graphic novel (more to come on that soon) . . . i'm also working on the sequel to "The Land of Sokmunster" with my friend Randy Heuser. That book came out about a year and half ago. it has been very well received and hopefully some good news about it will be announced verrrrrrry soon. :)Anyway, as we work on the new story, i thought i'd share here some fun promotional images from the first Sokmunster book that i thought you'd like. They are of the Moth King and King Jacque and a little promo poster we've done.
Well, we're really excited about the next chapter in this series. It's entitled "Revenge of the Moth King." oooooooohhhh . . . yep, he's back and he's none to happy with Sam and his best friend Spike.

okay, more to come.
:)
all the best,
m . . .

Hi Mike!
At last I have found my way into your new blogging site. It has been so fun to see all the images you have put out so far. The landscapes that is in Sokmunsters is mindblowing, so I hope you put some of them in the second one to!

Good luck with this and Herobear...
We are waiting for it!

Blom :)

I totally hate how my local comic shop never has stuff like this(still don't understand how they got 2 sculptings of that herobear a few years back)....

I really need to start buying over the internet...Looks Great Mike....

awesome! i'm sure i told you this story on the boards, but the first time i read sokmunster was with my daughter during our summer vacation to maine. sitting on the bed going through the book and loving the drawings and the fun story. it is one of her favorite memories. and funnily enough she brought sokmunster into class this week for her secret share (where the kids have to guess what her share is). she really wanted them to be able to guess the name of the book, but they couldn't. the slackers! ;^D

This is kind of off the subject, but does anyone know if there are any concept artist/ 2D hand-drawn animation careers available in Los Angeles?
