Inking Jack by cmichaelhall
Inking Jack
I just finished inking this Jack Kirby drawing of Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy. Kirby is one of my artistic heroes and Devil was one of my favorite characters as a kid, so I hope I did them both proud. (Microns, Winsor-Newton Series 7 #2 brush, Speedball Super Black ink)
Metamorpho in black and white by cmichaelhall

Here's the B&W version of the Metamorpho drawing. After I slapped some digital color on it, I realized I'd forgotten to add the texture on the right part of his torso, so I went back and fixed it. I did not, however, fix the color version on account of extreme laziness. :)
Metamorpho by cmichaelhall
My favorite comic book characters tend to be the weird ones: the also-rans, the second fiddles, the oddballs. Metamorpho rules.
Upcoming library comic book cover by cmichaelhall
Upcoming library comic book cover
This is the cover art to my forthcoming instructional comic book created for Independence Community College in Independence, KS. The book is written and drawn by me (with additional instructional material co-written by Matt Upson) and colored by Dustin Evans.
ICC Library comic preview by cmichaelhall
ICC Library comic preview
Here's a sneak peak at a panel from the instructional comic book I am on the verge of completing for the Independence Community College library! Story and art by me, colors by Dustin Evans.
I wrote, directed, and edited this commercial for the Independence Public Library in Independence, KS.  Before I went full-time as a freelancer, I was a librarian; now that I've decided that full-time freelancing isn't for me (I like the freedom to turn down clients when the work they're offering doesn't excite me), I'm back at work at a library.  Thing is, though, libraries always need cool promotional tools, so while you might at first think it's boring work, you'd be wrong...I get to do all KINDS of creative stuff!  Case in point:  this commercial.

I often say I didn't get serious about making comics until I decided film school wasn't for me, but truth be known, I don't think I could ever turn my back entirely on any of the media in which I enjoy working.  I will always have the film bug, same as I have the comics bug.  Maybe someday I'll actually get around to that feature I keep threatening to make...

Anyway, if you want to see the commercial, Click HERE!

C. Michael Hall
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I am a writer and cartoonist with a keen interest in self-publishing. I was heavily involved in the small press scene of the late 1990s, and I still occasionally self-publish the odd title, but most of my current work is in the area of educational comics. The first of my educational books, "Library of the Living Dead," has been downloaded over 1.8 million times since it went online in March of 2011. I am currently working under contract to produce more educational comics, as well as writing projects for Ape Entertainment and Viper Comics. I also teach a college course in comics and cartooning and, due to my background in libraries and educational settings, make public speaking appearances on the potential and value of comics and graphic novels in the educational environment.

Current Residence: Southeastern Kansas

Online versions of my educational comics:
"Monster Clash: Using the Wilton Library...Ferociously!", custom-created for the Wilton Library Association of Wilton, CT…
"Library of the Living Dead: Your Guide to Miller Library at McPherson College," custom-created for McPherson College of McPherson, KS…
"Supreme Librarians in Metaspace," custom-created for the School of Library and Information Management at Emporia State University…
"Sundown at the Library," custom-created for the Graham Library at Coffeyville Community College…
