Well the first blog I researched about is owned by artist Mike Mitchell or “Sir Mitchell”. I’ve seen Mike Mitchell’s work many times in the past such as on the site Threadless which is a online clothing shop where any person can upload artwork or a design to be made into clothing however, they must reach a certain amount of positive votes for their clothing to be printed. Mike Mitchell has time and time again has had his work printed because of his ability to depict popular pop culture characters such as characters from X-Men, Arrested Development, and Disney in a cute and recognizable way without text. I was really amazed at looking through his info and seeing his wide repertoire of work. He’s done work for shows such as Lost, movies from studios like Paramount, and big name brands such as Toshiba. I wish he had made an easier way of viewing his work however as most of it is set in an archive format and it’s hard to look for specifics.

Paul Robertson’s blog is the next one I researched. Paul Robertson is a pixel artist who does amazing work that is incredibly detailed. I heard about Robertson’s work a long time ago when I learned he did all of the animation for the Scott Pilgrim game and decided to go through his work. Since then he has worked on many new things and shows animation gifs. of work he’s completed on his blog. He currently is doing animation for a new game that got successfully funded through Kickstarter and most recently work done on the show “Gravity Falls”. Paul Robertson doesn’t however have a main site, he operates and showcases his work on his Live Journal, Tumblr, and DeviantArt. I wish that he gave more info about himself on his sites though as you cannot contact him without asking for information. He does update on his work frequently through twitter to say the least.
Lastly, I would like to talk about Issac Hannaford. Hannaford was part of the team that did the production concept work for Bungie. He has worked on the Halo series which have amazing concept artwork done for it. I hope to some day be able to do work such as his with that level of depth on the design of characters and landscapes. Issac’s blog mainly consist of updates on himself and the current projects he is working on and places he is attending such as conventions. I like that he uses his blog as not only a repertoire of his work but also a way to show his personality. Again I wish that he would include an easier way to look through his past work without having to go through his entire blog.
