A cheerful Herobear always brings

smiles...

Actually a small, hyper bird that

sits on the grumpy giraffe's head

would be a great friend.

What are your plans for San Diego ?

hey all!
glad you like him. even if he is Grumpy.

MAGNET . . . no. he's not in "Timmy". i'll put up some stuff from that soon. :) George here will be in his own book.

JOHN H . . . actually there are two little birds(kinda like Chip and Dale in the old Disney cartoons)that happily try to cheer up Grumpy 'ol George. maybe they'll show him a happy Herobear drawering. :)

San Diego con, hmmm? . . . well, i am sorry to have to say that i'm going to be absent this year. work and everything has consumed me. i have to take the year off from the convention life. however, i am working on a bunch of new boooks and stuff for next year . . . patience my friends . . . patience . . .
i very much look forward to next year already. good stuff is coming. :) :):):) :)

again, glad that you all like George. :)

take care all,
m. . .

Ha, what a great sketch. Laughed the second it popped up on my screen. Can't wait to see what you do with him. Thanks for the kind words.

Love your style. You are one of the main reasons I never give up drawing. I have those days where I just can't draw, and feel like I am wasting my time. Then I would pick up one of your books and feel that excitement again to continue on. So thanks for your art, and for the inspiration you probably don't even realize you give to others.

Hey Mike!!!
We´ve met in 2000 at Sand Diego Con. I´m Looney Tunes, Animaniacs and Scooby artist for DC comic and Warner.
As I´ve told you then your are is terrific and you´re Herobear comics are the most interesting stuff that appeared in the last years.
The Juniper Lee comic is great and it has a lot of action and fun.
Hope you have time to take a look to my blog.
