Tales of Wordishure - News
This year has already started off great with a TV interview at our local PBS station. Uncommon Sense with Junia Doan was a fun interview, I'll link the video here soon. I am also lined up to do some more public speaking on writing and publishing. Two publishing opportunities are coming together for my publishing company so far as well. Moonhouse has been officially written and is now being edited. I'm beginning artwork shortly. I also am 30 percent finished with my Wagon Tales illustration for Artprize. Lessons in Art is still in production and new ideas are taking shape. With the blessings of God this will be Mick Art Productions best year ever!
2015 Wrap Up
This was an amazing year for my family. First I want to say thank you to all my supporters. You've encouraged me to continue in my children's outreach ministry with your kind words and prayers. My daughter Emerald was born in November and what a blessing she is! My wife and I couldn't be happier, if you want to follow me on Facebook you can see all the pictures! :)
New ideas for book III have been written, I still have a few stories to noodle over though, because Wordishure has a 7 story structure, it's a real challenge on how to make it all come together.
Lessons in Art. More writing was done and a lot of pre-marketing. Still deciding on a price point. Getting lots of feedback from Homeschooling families on this.
Moonhouse. My newest idea is still being written. It is my funniest work yet, so I'm hoping you'll be patient with me on this. It has the makings of a classic!!!
Posters are now available
My 5 large drawings made for the books and ArtPrize are now available as poster prints! Filmore, Applepuss, Brimnibble, Fordywinx, and the Bugboat. You can purchase them at my signings or write me direct for pricing and shipment.
A Story of Clay released!
My newest series is out and the response in positive! Kids and parents are loving the claymation and the unique storyline. I've got big plans for this one and I hope to someday make it into it's own TV series.
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.
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. 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.
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.
