Arty4ever.com The artwork of Michael Auger!
« on: August 24, 2005, 10:17:41 AM »
To those who don't know me, hello! :smt039

I have been an active freelance artist in the DC area since 1998. My motto is "If you can dream it, I can draw it!"

My website: www.arty4ever.com features my humorous illustration, as well as some examples of design work I have done (both print and web) and even a bit of animation. There is also a gallery section that features my offbeat paintings which have been exhibited at various nightclubs, restaurants, and galleries.

Well, that's enough shameless self-promotion for now!

All the best,
Michael

I love your work.  You have a great sense of humor!  I also like your use of color - I'm always attracted to works that are full of livel color.

Thanks Krissy. I had a lot of fun creating my custom "living dead doll" and I'm glad you think she's "rad" - he he - that's such a great word!

Other invited artists who created dolls for the show included Michael Dougherty (artist and screen writer on Superman Returns and X Men 2), Simon Bisley (comic book legend), Voltaire (gothic artist, animator and musician), Angus Oblong (Oblongs TV show creator and artist), Hiddy, (famous Japanese designer), and Kevin Eastman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle writer, creator and artist) among a bunch of other great artists! I'm very excited to be a part of this show that happens early next month. If you are road tripping up to the "Big Apple" between the 1st and 14th of November be sure to check it out!

Hello Mary Anne,

No, I missed the last Artomatic but I was at the one in 2002.
Check out this thread...
http://artdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=2096

Looking forward to the next one!

By the bye, in case anyone was wondering, Mary Anne calls me "OJ" because that's how you pronounce my last name.

Hello Sean,

(Always next year, I guess. Keeping Busy!)

Hey Sean,

I'll be selling art tonight at the Counter Culture Festival but my "Dumb Dog" painting at the Flux event is not for sale (NFS). My purpose is to use the piece to promote myself. The idea being that the attention it attracts will encourage people to check out my website... www.arty4ever.com ...where they can hire me to create any type of painting (or any other arty project) that they can dream up.

~Michael
If you can dream it,
I can draw it!
