Tales of Wordishure - News
Artprize Registration Complete
For this year's ArtPrize I am entering two of my new drawings. "Filmore's Feast" and "Applepuss". I am excited to see the reactions to my new pieces. My venue is the Courtyard Marriott, come see my new pieces and enjoy.
Posters are now available
My 3 large drawings made for the books and ArtPrize are now available as poster prints! Brimnibble, Fordywinx, and the Bugboat. You can purchase them at my signings or write me direct for pricing and shipment.
This should be the most exciting year to date for Mick Art Productions! With the purchase of a new home in Midland, Michigan I will have my own art studio! This is the main reason "Lessons in Art" wasn't released last year, it took all our resources to purchase and move into the new house. If the Lord wills it, "Lessons in Art" will resume production and get a summer release. I'm also looking forward to doing the photography and layout for the new "Story of Clay" series I've been writing. Don't worry readers, Wordishure Book III is still in the works, I've been making story notes, sketches, and outlines. I'm hoping for a 2016 release. I also have a surprise book coming out this year...I'll release more info on that as soon as I can...
Big things are coming up in 2014. "Lessons in Art with Mick McArt" is currently being filmed and turned into a homeschool art curriculum. An art kit and work book for the kids will also be avaiable with it. Brimnibble posters are also being worked on. Books you say? Mick Art Productions Publishing will be releasing a new book of poetry "God Is" by popular Michigan Christian poet Charles C. Smith, author of Redeemed. Come see me at one of my many signings and I'll fill you in on all the details!
2013 Wrap Up
The Lord sure has blessed my family this year. First there was the birth of my son Jonah and the good health of my wife Erica. Micah is growing fast and showing an interest in going to signings with me. The release of Beacons of Light really moved my heart and has become one of the most powerful witnessing tools I think I've ever read! I had a great time at Grand Con Gaming convention speaking to all the wonderful people there. I even developed a new children's series which I hope to launch soon. If the Lord tarries for 2014 I hope to develope Tales of Wordishure book III and the new music CD. The Christkindle Market in Frankenmuth Michigan was outstanding this year and it helped me get a whole new audience, plus it helped me build confidence in my art. The wife and I are also hoping to find a bigger house soon, one where I can have a studio for my art. If you can, pray for my ministry, it keeps me very busy but I love it and can't wait to get out and share God's blessings with whoever I can.

The Wonderful Music of Ben Everson!
My wife and I attended a concert at local church and got a chance to listen to Ben and his wife Amanda sing. It was a blessing for sure. We even invited him to come to our church for another performance! Please check out his website at: biblerevival.com/blog/. Thanks to Ben for being a true Friend of Wordishure!
Beacons of Light released!
Thanks to all those of you who have been praying for this books release and for God to give me a clear vision about it. The amazing journey I had putting this together really changed who I am and had an amazing affect on my Christian walk. This book will touch hearts and hopefully change thoughts and behaviours for the better. Go to the Mick Art Productions website to get a copy!
Mick Art Productions Hits the Road!
Thanks go out to Bob & Alice Smith for joining me out on the road for the Cincinatti and Nashville shows! Both shows were an incredible experience and the people were a blessing. I even met a girl in Tennessee that has read my books over 20 times! Not bad for an 8 year old! We will be doing much more traveling in the future if the Lord wills it.
