    Dudes!You may or may not have noticed that this past year, I have done a pretty shitty job of updating my tumblr. There are multiple reasons for that, but the bigger part was that I stopped identifying with it. It didn’t feel like “me” despite it being a collection of things I liked. In a desperate attempt to reinvigorate my love and use of tumblr, I have done a mass purge of posts, removing nearly 80-90% of them. The rest have been saved or moved, which brings me to my next point.I now have two tumblrs. 
blog.sirmitchell.com:
a tumblr focused purely on me and my art. 
tacosupremeleader.com: 
a tumblr where I post stuff that inspires me, things that make me laugh, and shit I find interesting. On top of that, my favorite posts from the last 5 years are archived here. 
Some people want to follow me just for the art I do, and some like the funny/interesting stuff I find/reblog. Now you can do one, the other or both. There will be no overlap between the two. 
I spent the last 24 hours curating my favorite tumblr posts from the last 5 YEARS, so if you’re having a night in, have a look through tacosupremeleader.com, as there are some real gems in there. Super high quality stuff here guys!

    Sara Pocock is animating some of my little food dudes in the hopes that we can do something much crazier with them. This is the first of hopefully many tests. SO EXCITED. Thanks Sara! View high resolution

    I recently got to design a vinyl record for Batman: The Animated Series theme song. Mondo was doing villains, I picked Joker. This was the result. 

    As it’s one of the best animated shows of all time, I was VERY stoked I got the chance to do this.

    SDCC recap!

    I had an EXCELLENT time at Comic Con. It’s hard not to when you get to meet a bunch of new people, see friends, and nerd out for almost a week straight. I wanted to thank all the people who follow me on here who stopped by! You guys are always a treat. 

    Pictures (from left to right): Me, wielding my favorite SDCC exclusive. Late night human pyramid at Jim Lee’s 50th birthday party, featuring Jim Lee, Chris Daughtry (?!?) and my old pal Emi Lennox (among others). Me with old pals Alex Pardee and Dave Correia. Me in 10 years AKA Jay Shaw. Another shot of Lil Mikey, my new TMNT toy that’s being released in the  near future. My booth babe Bryan watching over all my wares. Me doing a quick sketch while wielding the power. My favorite cosplay of the con! Me doing a signing at the Mondo booth for Tree Huggers. The con exclusive Lil Mikey ice cream pin, which was a huge hit!

    See you guys next year I hope!

    Curious about when all my Marvel Show APs, SDCC leftovers, and all other prints from 2014 will be going in my shop? Sign up for my newsletter. It’s brand spankin’ new, and will only be used for good, I promise!

    "Tree Hugger"
I didn’t get a chance to post this while at SDCC, but this was my contribution to Mondo’s set of Gaurdian prints. Sold out super quick! I’ll have some artist proofs at some point. Thanks to everyone who came by the booth! It was a lot of fun meeting everyone!

    Just want to mention that I plan on doing a whole series of these dudes, with hopefully some more surprises in store than just prints. On the off chance that both of these prints (and future breakable dudes) sell out, I will be reprinting a variant of them facing the opposite direction (with a slight change) so that any matchup is possible. I REALLY like making these dudes, and I hope people enjoy them enough to put them in their homes, so that others may imagine the ensuing battle. 

    Both of these dudes will be #SDCC exclusives, available at my table at the Nucleus booth (#2743).

    I designed my very own TMNT toy! This is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever had the pleasure of doing, I’m so thrilled. I’ve had to keep this a secret for months! 
If I had $5 when I was a kid, it was going to be spent on a ninja turtle figure. So much of my childhood was defined by TMNT, I watched every episode, I had the toys, the shirts, the games, the comics. I wish I could say “Lil Mikey” was a dream come true, but I never could have fathomed this happening. I am so extremely excited about this figure, and I can’t wait to show it off at SDCC. You can see this in person at my table (#2743) or Mondo’s booth (#835). Trust me, you’ll want to see it in person, it’s bigger than you think.

    Alright, so I had hoped to have a FEW prints lined up for SDCC, and that quickly turned into many. I’m really excited about these prints and I hope you guys are too! 

    Each print will be available at the start of each day in limited quantities (so those who can only make it on certain days will still have a shot). I’ll also have a SDCC exclusive t-shirt which will be available in limited quantities. Nucleus will be releasing an exclusive print, Mondo will also have a new (yet to be announced) Just Like Us, as well as the Joker record. 

    You can find me at the Gallery Nucleus booth (#2743) where I’ll be with the huggable Scott C. and the fabulous Frank and Becky (also huggable). Please stop by and say hello, pick up a free postcard and see the Lil Mikey figure in person!

    Very inspired by Cameron Stewart and Babs new Batgirl design. I finally had a free moment last night to quickly sketch something up, and I got carried away. I suppose sacrificing a couple hours of sleep is worth it if you’re having fun.
