About Me

Hello Model Mayhem!

I am here to hopefully expand my pool of reference models!

*WHY?
Because I am an emerging fine artist - more specifically, a scratchboard artist.

*WHAT IS SCRATCHBOARD?
Scratchboard is a relatively unknown medium that was first introduced over 100 years ago in Britain and France. The scratchboard technique is one where drawings are created using sharp tools such as razor blades, needles and even straight pins. These tools are used to etch (scratch) into a thin layer of white China clay that is coated with black India ink. The etching or scratching the artists does, along with various removal techniques, leaves a crisp fine white line of clay showing under the ink.

*SO WHAT'S THE PLAN?
The plan is to expand the art in the next year by experimenting with many new scratchboard techniques covering various subject matters in the artwork.

I have some exhibits lined up for spring so I need reference models for some killer pieces that have been dancing around in my mind!

"WHAT THEY SAY" lol

". . . .After attending The Columbus College of Art & Design and studying illustration, Mychael moved on to graduate from The School of Advertising Art College with a degree in Illustration and Graphic Design. Since then Mychael has lent his creative eye and imagination to projects for many Fortune 500 companies such as Chevrolet, eBay, DaimlerChrysler, Proctor & Gamble, General Mills, Dominos Pizza, Dark & Lovely Beauty Products, Shell Oil and NBC. Throughout his career, Mychael has also had the pleasure of working with many other creative and talented individuals. They include musicians Alicia Keys, Barry White, Bootsy Collins, Omarion, Slum Village, T.I, Young Jeezy, Tamia, actress Kellita Smith, director Paul Hunter, Oscar winning cinematographer Dean Semler and NASCAR drivers Dale Earnhardt, JR, Tony Stewart and NFL Legend Howie Long. Mychael's work has been seen by millions and he is recognized as truly gifted among those who have worked with him and by his peers. Now, once again, life has come full circle and for Mychael that means, it's all about the art. It means returning to the artistic simplicity of rolling his sleeves up and creating beautiful images, just like in his youthful days of lugging around a bag of crayons."
