Thank you so very much amn, I appreciate that! Bless you too
Cool, i miss your designs. Your designs always pushed the proffesionalism part of my designs. Its funny how i take certain things from certain artists and apply them to my work. From you, I take proffesionalism, from Rory I take the respect of bold colors, from Victoria I take cleanliness and sometimes placement. I'm kind of like a blender. taking bits and pieces of good, fresh ideas and swirling them all togther.
You still alive man? how are you and the fam doin?
hey, thanks for the comments. i appreciate the critique as well, it's rare to get useful criticism, especially in the Christian community. so thank you.
great designs man, you'll be seeing more from me in the future, but i recently submitted my first to the site, check it out when you get a chance, thanks!
This comment has been removed.
Let me be the first to say, I was absolutely flabbergasted when I saw that your 7thdaySlumber submissions didn't win. It was a "no-brainer" for me.
Ok so, I hope you don't mind another question, I was wondering how you made that peace sign on the peace with God design. I'm trying to do something with a peace sign in it and I don't know how to begin. I have photoshop 7. Thank you so much for answering my questions! It's a big help.
Hey Michael! I know you were a big supporter of some of the designs I've had on here- one reason I haven't been submitting lately is that I've been super busy art directing a new line! Please check it out and let us know what you think!
Dude Love your "The Lord Rocks" shirt, some talent you got there!
You are very talented God is good!
I have stores in Latin America and USA and would like to work with you and print some of your designs. Please let me know if you are interested and contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
God bless you!
Thanks for helping me! I'll try it as soon as I can and if I have any more questions I'll be sure to ask!
Hey Michael how you been? can you link me to your facebook page if you have one so I can add you as a friend..thanx
Hello! Your wife says I can ask you anything so I have a question- I'm trying to design a shirt with a angel fuzzy and I want the angel to look like it is shining or glowing. Could you tell me how to do that in photoshop? Thanks so much! :)
Ha Ha. No prob. Happy Birthday Michael. That's seriously funny, my birthday is today too, and i'm not kidding! Aug. 5, right.
WOWO!!!! Love your work! I'd love for you to work for me! I own a clothing line called ADAM & EVE COUTURE!!! I couldn't find your contact information so if you could email me yours and your rates that would be awesome!!!
Hey Michael. I'm really new to using Photoshop and Illustrator and am wondering how you make your designs look so much like their on the shirt with all those shadow effects. Thanks-Joshkn
I posted this on a shirt entry. It was directed towards your comment so i thought i would post the whole thing on your wall.......This is pretty cool. Ive seen a similiar design a while back, but dont recall specific details on it or even who submitted it. Actually i think it said "Jesus is my 401k." I like it. Personally, I would have added a little bit of elements to make it more appealing to a future buyer. God bless!
Michael. I like what you had to say about this topic. I try not to worry about money here on earth, because what does it matter? The only person who matters doesnt give a flyin flip about who has what dollar amount in their bank account. Money is the God we work for (.....shirt idea....) We work so we can get our greasy fingers on a sum of paper, so we can live the life of the world. What a waste...What a waste...
Hey, Michael. Thanks for all the comments you've left on my designs! Your advice is very helpful and your comments are encouraging.
Wow! The last wall post you left was great. It's awesome to know that there are people who really care enough to spend a few minutes to answer a couple questions. Your help has been greatly appreciated and I will definitely have to look up the different things you mentioned. It also sounds like you have a pretty amazing job, too. Well thanks once again. You truly are an inspiration :)
Michael! You are anointed, brother! I love your style and your heart. Keep designing "as unto the Lord"... and may He be glorified in all that you do! I can't wait to see what your next offering is.
Thanks a lot for replying =] I do have Photoshop Elements but I'm still figuring out how to use all of those complicated things on there. Do you happen to know of a tutorial or a faster way of figuring things out? I have figured out quite a bit by myself, but I can tell that there is way more to learn...thanks again! God bless you, also.
hello! i just wanted to say that i think all of your designs are amazing! keep up the good work.
by the way, what program(s) do you use to create this amazing stuff?
redid the design .. check out?
I meant "Love 4 God"
Congratulations on your recent wins!! I really liked your "Love 2 God" design and I knew that I was going to win.
Hey my dude very blessed designs! I'm new at this canvas thing and i want to know exactly how the designs have to be uploaded. I know it has to be 19" X 28" but i have no idea how it has to be set up. Forgive me lol >.< my email is email@example.com please reply asap! ...God Bless...
I'm Using CS4 Photoshop or Ai CS4. But indeed thanks for the help, this will help me on my next design. God Bless
I like your art! You and your wife are a blessing to the Canvas community! Looking forward to seeing more designs!
Hello Michael, i like your designs they are very professional, you have a gift from the Lord. Brother in cristo, i have question? let me began, this is regarding the template guy's shirt? Where do you start your designs first? I start my design on the guy's blank shirt, don't know if this is the right way. Some how i try to corporate to the canvas requirement and the pixels are stretch. What do i do? Please reply back. Thanks...
The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Hi Michael. I wanted to let you know that I was encouraged by your interview and testimony. Thank you for sharing about your life and family. You have a beautiful wife and daughter. Thank you for contributing so much wisdom and nice art to the Canvas family. You and your wife are a blessing to everyone here. Keep submitting your creative ideas and designs. God bless you and your family.
Michael-what an awesome interview! I was so looking forward to reading your testimony. I thank the Lord that He got a hold of your life and didn't let you slip away, He never ceases to amaze me how merciful He is to pull us out of the hardest places. Just the fact that He did that shows He really has a plan for you life, greater than you've ever dreamed of! Your whole family is precious to Him and I pray He will bless and KEEP you all. If I'm ever in Florida I'm gonna have to meet you guys. Blessings as always ...Oh, and I still can't believe you like my design that much. Haha.
Hey Michael, I found this site just surfing around, it helps me put cool colors together for my designs.
hey michael, will you please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org ? it's not about my site or anything like that but i really need someone to help me with something. thanks
I wanted to ask you...how do the mens C28 shirts fit compared to american apparel? I'm gonna order some shirts for the summer.
Congratulations on your win! I don't how I missed this design, I guess when I was missing from Canvas for a while. I'm going to have to cop this for my wife when it hits the stores!
Hey bro! I love your designs and I really appreciate your feedback on mine. I'd love to connect more so that we could discuss designwork and maybe some of your techniques! You make some great stuff! By the way, I'm also a musician, technically a Hip Hop Artist! You can check out my stuff at www.myspace.com/jdjesusdisciple
Thanks and God bless!!!
oh ok.. yeah you answer my question, i will try it.. thanks for your help man, i wish someday to get the level that you have.. i only have 6 months designing.. i start learning on January... to me you and Zack are the best designers on canvas.. keep it up.. blessings
thanks for your input on my design I dont really design t-shirts so it's a little odd. i like to draw tho thats my gift :)
Hey man! thanks for all your feedbacks.. i really pay attention to them.. dude i wanna know how you get those templates, they are really good, can you tell me where can i get it? Blessings
Thanks so much for all the positive comments and constructive criticism on my designs! I really appreciate your advice about how to make my shirts better! Thanks again.
Just wanted to shot out a big thank you for all of your comments and (very good) advice. It's been such a blessing...
Michael, I have to say you and your wife's comments are so encouraging. And I'm so glad you don't just say "great shirt" but you give helpful advice! I know you are helping alot of people get better. I still feel so new to real design, web design was what I did for years, with just a tiny bit of graphic stuff on the side (including a bit of my own shirt printing), but thankfully Canvas is a great atmosphere for learning! I have learned so much from just looking at other designers' work, and it's great to have motivation from other Believers. I always love your work and look forward to more! Blessings
hahahahaa, No im not "POSING" as a designer... I am one, Have been in the printing and apparel industry for 5yrs now. Im also recently fulltime freelance now and absolutely loving it! I was just saying im a huge kid at heart. Design has been my passion since i was 16 (then it was something fun to do) so i have been at this for 11 years developing many skills. Actually decided to go full force with it when i won state AND nationals(unexpectedly) in Graphic design for the scholastic art awards! I was way stoked on that and blessed to have parents that pushed me towards what i love. So yeah im now 27 and absolutely grateful i can use my talents to glorify God, after all he gave them to me.
later Michael. be blessed brother.
Michael, I want to thank you for all your advice and encouragement! I love reading your comments. You take the time to notice the little details that others seem to overlook, and you are very honest but kind about each design. Thank you for taking the time and putting in the effort, but most of all, for being completely honest but kind. It's a huge encouragement to me, and I am sure the other designers as well! God bless you!
thanks for all the comments and constructive criticism on my designs. i REALLY appreciate them!! :) designing shirts is new to me, and since ALL your stuff is amazing i am glady willing to listen to your thoughts. thanks :)
Just wanted to drop you a note.... you have some amazing designs. Your style reminds me a lot of my own. Keep up the great work!
hey michael, thanks for all your constructive feedback on my (and everyone else's basically) designs. i'm always on the lookout for when you comment on one of mine. and props for being super professional with your shirts. the detail is amazing, even if they don't always fit my taste. God bless you in everything, man.
Next time you and your family come to Manch lets get some Dunkins and chat, You an your wife are amazing people, just in the fact of how you encourage everyone on here and impart wisdom on them. thank you.
Michael! Thanks for commenting on all my shirts; i really appreciate it. I really love your designs; they're all amazing. =]
Michael, thanks for all the comments. It's cool getting advice from a professional graphic designer because that's what I'm studying so..it helps a lot! Blessings
Hi Michael, I have a question for you!
Are you still doing 3D graphics! what kind of Programs you use? where I work I've been working on a project and they want me to do 3d graphics, I usually use Autocad 2007, I've done a few drawings! now they are looking into Rhino 3D, and some Sketch up! I need an advice! I really want to do this project really good, but I don't know what program should I be using, I took a Studio 3d max course it's really nice, it seems a little bit hard to learn because it's very complex, but here in San diego I can't find any training on 3D.. I would love to know how did you started in 3D graphics! Thank you very much Michael, God bless you always.. Oscar F
Thanks for your input I appreciate it :)
