The Edge of Dreams

I did this as a drawing a while back for my free coloring pages I offered here, which is a coloring page not in my for-sale coloring book, and decided that I really wanted to do a color version myself… even though its fitting well into the series would even further-delay the release of my […]

The Hanging Gardens

A new surreal fantasy landscape by Myke Amend

Black Ships Ate the Sky

A look into the details of the finished piece, as well as the steps along the way to completion.

The End of the Series

Think of a visual representation of a statements or concept, as a series or a single image. Consider a style or media that would be striking, and imagine it taken to a level beyond your ability. Research said media if it is new, and think on the concept or image for a while – but […]

Slave 1881 Finally available as a giclee on canvas

The HP 4670, rocks. 600 DPI, in seconds. Perfectly flat, no distance from the painting, means I can finally get good imaging of my paintings without the $300+ a pop imaging fee, which means savings to you. I decided to take this one step further, because limited editions and all, though they appeal to some […]

For Lovers of Rare Books

I made this book a while back, out of hardwood, and spent a lot of time sanding, carving, and polishing it. I also put a lot of love into making the securing system – two fat-ended brass pins to give me lots of room to fill it. If someone grabs it, through our Kickstarter: – […]

Airships and Tentacles Coloring Book

In thinking of something really good, but inexpensive that I could put together as an added incentive to be a part of our kickstarter, and in staying up all night making a new engraving – it came to me… This coloring book. When I was a kid, Advanced Dungeons and Dragon’s Monster manual, and their […]

New Wallpaper: Lost City 1280 x 960

Not the greatest scan… alright, it is a shite scan. But, I killed the big scanner and the Lexmark scanner is never good for anything save for documents. So, the subtle clouds and color in the sky are somewhat washed out, and some detail is lost as well. Regardless, being wallpaper and all, I figured […]

New Wallpaper: The Rescue 1280×960

This one is finally available. It took me forever to settle on the right cropping for this one, but I managed – much of this due to regular requests to make this one available. This painting features Abney Park’s trademarked HMS Ophelia, and was commissioned by Captain Robert Brown of the famed steampunk and retro-future […]

New Wallpaper: The Ruins 1280×800

This piece is somewhat based on my collaborative work with Bethalynne Bajema … That 30 foot x 10 foot mural we have sitting in our garage awaiting a studio space to display it in. The mountain city-scape in this picture is *heavily* influenced by her creations, as well as my desire to see them as […]

Rescue Sale

Long story short: The Rescue 11×14 Metallic prints are on sale for only $24 through Mid-December [here] I am at month 7 of trying to get an issue resolved with the printing company who used to be my favorite. 7 months of getting no response back here or there, or a simple “cut and paste” […]

Join the Circus

Some of you may already be aware of this, but this year I am participating in Grand Rapids’ Artprize competition along with Bethalynne Bajema, Ted Jauw, Kate Jauw, Bethany Greenier, John Hyatt, and Cassie Truskowski, with our combined work…

Undeath from Above

The original was drawn in pen and ink on 11×14 inch Bristol Board, I did the coloring with my 4-year old Adesso drawing tablet so as to preserve the pen and ink original.

Art! Troglodites Hate It, but You’ll Love It!

…Unlike money, which depends on a reliable system of government, art can be traded for gold, tools, women, men, chickens, or circus bears in post-apocalyptic settings, save for those dominated by troglodites and C.H.U.D.s, and it even serves as highly-prized contraband in every dystopian oligarchal collectivist society.

Some Day I Will Never Grow Up

The original was painted on a wood panel cabinet I hand-made for the purpose of doing this painting. I’ll be finishing up the cabinet when I return home.. I can’t tell you what I’ll be filling the cabinet with – but when the construct is done, I will have had a lot of fun making things to fill it with.

The Sweet Smell of Recovery

I am back up and running. Weeee! Three New artworks and some external links featured within this post.

New Desert Shadows Wallpaper

Cropped from the full-size piece to feature the airship only to make for a more up close, boldly detailed, and vivid view of the work (available as 18×12 metallic prints, and as 36×24 giclees on canvas in my store)

This desktop is 1800 x 1200, but can be resized or stretched to fit your needs.

Lift Off Show in Alhambra, CA Jan 9th thru Feb 1

Today, I sent off three giclees to Gallery Nucleus for the “Lift Off!” art show, adding subtle miniature new artworks within each piece including (but not limited to) added airships, additional polar bears, bottles of rum, additional cephalopods, brightened constellations and other details in order to make each giclee its own unique piece of art.

Desert Shadows – Now Available (in my store)

I reached the point where I *wanted* to add “just a little bit more”, but my instincts were telling me that might be detrimental to the cause and I called it “done”… typically, as one learns over thousands of years of banishment to Earth, this is the point where one more brush stroke equals “overworked”…

The Rescue Limited Edition Giclees current count

I was asked earlier today what the status (particularly current remaining count) of the 32×22 (full sized) giclees are, and since I feel it may interest repeat visitors and new visitors alike…

Clockwork Cheshire Cat and Mechanical Moon Men

3 new engravings, three new prints, and some details on what I’ve been up to.

These are comparible to Moleskines, and are really, really nice (and really unique) journals.

Happy Accident – new print available

24×12 canvas giclees of “the Machine” happened by accident today. They fill a good amount of wall space, look beautiful, and are the perfect way to get a giclee of this piece for those unable to buy the huge 48×24 inch version.
