Said "This is a reposting of my first Mr. McCarey & Keith comic, "Life's Imponderables", since I spotted a mistake in the first time I posted this. But no matter what, Keith is still pretty bad at math."

Said "Mr. McCarey & Keith: Keith's Valentine to Mr. McCarey. Yes, I know, it is way too late for this one (I have an Easter one coming up soon). But again, I'm in the middle of revising the comics that I've done in 2014 and 2015 before I (hopefully) start on making new ones. And I've been caught up in so many other things that I haven't revised them as fast as I was hoping to. But regardless of the context, the core message is still relevant for any day of the year: just give each other love. Also, the last panel, I will admit, may not be my most well-written, but I've always love ambiguity, when characters say less than what should be said, whether it is in comedy or otherwise, and in Keith's case, one can only imagine the Valentine present he made from such objects."

Said "There's a scene in the Charlie Brown Easter Beagle Special where everybody was having a sad Easter morning. So of course, leave it to none other than our old pal Snoopy to come along with a smile on his face and brighten everyone's day by giving them colored Easter eggs. So here's my drawing of one of the most iconic characters ever created offering hugs in the hopes that it would cheer up your day, especially nowadays."

Said "Mr. McCarey & Keith: Keith and the Jack Ryan Movie Poster. Made this after I saw the poster for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and thought how funny it would be if someone took the tagline seriously. Then I thought maybe Keith would be the only one to take it seriously. At the risk of sounding self-congratulatory, I think I did pretty good with my rendering of the poster in question."

Said "Hi, Thank you for responding to job #39391 - Santa's Magical Journey. On the 4th of November I will be taking photo's of Santa's grotto as these should give you an idea of what I'm seeking. Once I have these, I will reply again so that you can then decide if this is the sort of work you want. Frederick Linden-Wyatt" to T.J. Mulvaney

I just saw this message today (man, how weird is that!) and I'm looking forward to seeing them today. :)
T.J. Mulvaney - Over 30 days ago
I just realized 11/4 is the day you're taking the photos (boy, the week I've been having). What I mean to say is looking forward to seeing the photos when they're ready. :)

Very simple but cute. It's digital right? What do you use? I have a Wabacon Bamboo.
T.J. Mulvaney - Over 30 days ago
Just the Paint application that comes with my personal computer. And believe me: it may look simple, but the work itself certainly isn't. But hey, it's worth it in the end! ;)

My bad, I meant to say "desktop computer." Sorry about that!
Ingrid Zacharias - Over 30 days ago
No problem! lol :) I know it is quite difficult. But you did a great job!
T.J. Mulvaney - Over 30 days ago
Thanks! You have a pretty impressive portfolio yourself. The book by Muffin the Cat sounds intriguing!

About Me:
I am an aspiring illustrator and writer. My style of drawing is digital, the works merely achieved via the Paint application on my computer which is admittedly limited and requires meticulous attention (at least in my case), but the results are eye-poppingly colorful. One of my biggest achievements from this has been my comic strip, Mr. McCarey & Keith, which you can find as well as my other artwork on my Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/

As for writing, I have penned a few children's stories, film scripts and movie reviews.

I also like to grade movies, which you can find on my Letterboxd account and my website:
