Mike's past "Kitchen Sink/Wall of Sound" recordings as "Arturo Bastard" and The Monster U. Orchestra have given way to the smaller sounds put onto the modest 4-Track unit shown to the right. This selection is called "Nobody Home"...
I used to say Art was all about failure, failing millions of times until a level of proficiency is reached, but nowadays the better example I use is of a knife being sharpened. Everyone's blade starts off dull, but with time you can make it--or your eye--as sharp as you like....
I see elements or influences from Comics & other "Pop" sources, and I think it's not only important to keep the work interesting for yourself by pursuing those interests but also to realize that it's possible to evolve beyond them. Or simply enlarge those skills & interests to encompass more as you grow & develop as an artist & person.
Past graduates have gone on to Fame and Glory, like the rising eBay star Chris Conidis.

Because Winter is coming
The Land of Snow
The Universe, vast and trackless, less full of things than nothings, spins and ripples and the ripples cross and re-cross and make the Space and Time that sparkle for animal eyes that watch; and the great creation knows it will die, and knew before it was ever born, but the deepest seed in the mind of the man thinks he will not, and in the end, who is right and who is wrong?
From "The Octavia Chronicles"
