Machination will feature a collection of short stories written and illustrated by me, Michael Murdock exploring a variety of styles.
My name is Michael Murdock, and I am an illustrator. I have been creating artwork my whole life, so naturally I focused on it as a career. On top of my day job as a full-time illustrator, I am always looking to create something new in my spare time. I love exploring different styles and new ways of doing things. This is how I got the idea for this project.
Another influence for this project were the many volumes of Flight. The difference between my project and Flight, is my project will have only one artist: me. I aim to explore different styles, so that when you read it, if you didn't know, you wouldn't know the same artist created it.
Another reason I want to create this book is for my kids. I have 4 awesome kids, and I think it would be great to give them a book that they can enjoy reading and know that their father created it. They know I so art, but most of it they have no interest in. This would be great for them to see what I can do with my talent.
I have already created one story for this compilation. Here is the preview: http://www.behance.net/gallery/10-Page-Comic-King-of-Carrot-Flowers/1008767
My plan is to make it to around 60 pages all together.
