Welcome, 2016!


Another year has come and gone.  2015 was definitely a year for big changes in my professional life.

Unfortunately, I had to close down The Comic Studio.  Students were dwindling and I just couldn't keep the doors open.  But I still keep in touch with a few students who've been with me since day 1.  I hope we can get together still for an afternoon of art and video games or anime.

But I had the opportunity to take on the role of graphic designer for the Memphis Redbirds.  I am really enjoying my new position along with all the challenges it's presenting me.  So far I've been able to design special event nights, among them were superhero and Star Wars related.

On the comic book side, Shinobi: Ninja Princess was picked up by Scholastic.  So now kids can get the trade book from the local comic book shop AND the school book fair!  Remember how exciting those were?  I'm looking forward to attending my son's book fair in February to do sketches and signings for the kids.

I am really excited to announce the launch of our MAW Productions Patreon

This will be a family affair, so you won't be getting special updates and art from just me.  My wife, Janet, along with our son, Anakin, will be creating as well.  We appreciate any support you're able to offer.  Here are some of the tiers and perks you'll be able to select from:






To be clear, the MAW Productions Patreon is NOT for commissions.  The perks and rewards you get will be art we choose to work on at the time.  So it will be a mixed bag of comic book/superhero stuff, whimsical sketches, fantasy, etc.

If you're still interested in commissioning us with a special request, you can email us at wadesworldpostcast@gmail.com.

ONWARD, 2016!!!
