Computer dead. :( Care to help?

Hi folks!

Last summer my computer died (after several years of faithful service) and I’ve been having to make do with a replacement that doesn’t have a very good graphics card and crashes when I try to run applications like Photoshop.  

If you want to help me replace my laptop, any donation I receive will go directly toward that end… and get me back to work making art.  I have a very very tight budget, and can’t afford to replace my computer in the foreseeable future.

To donate, click the yellow/gold donate button at the top of my page.  Feel free to email me too, if you have any questions or suggestions: realcalvinandhobbes@gmail.com 


Thanks in advance for your help!  I can’t express enough how meaningful it’s been working on this project, and hearing from fans of my work, and other Calvin and Hobbes enthusiasts.

Regards,

- Michael

Spring update (2013):

I just wanted to take a moment to assure everyone I am still around, and still working on this project.  I am still available to email, etc.  Nothing has changed.  

I’m still receiving daily emails with questions about prints and original wallpaper files, and so far everyone is really happy with the answers ;)

Thank you for all the nice emails, and please keep them coming!  Also, please keep sharing this blog with your friends and family!  I love that even after more than 3 months since I first posted these, and after they went viral on 2/7/13, people are still just as excited today as they were the day they first appeared on imgur and reddit.  
Last time I checked, more than 5 million people had shared these world wide (that I could see)

How did you find me?

If you need an excuse to email me (ha) …I’d love to know how people found my blog!  Shoot me a message, let me know how you found me, and anything else you’d care to share!  Also, if you have any suggestions for future work I could do, or know anything I should share on my blog… i’m all ears (eyes?)!

Please don’t forget to check out the “Dear Mr. Watterson” documentary (see more on that here: http://www.dearmrwatterson.com/ )
If you live in or around Cleveland OH, or in Madison WI, the documentary will be showing at the Cleveland International Film Festival on April 9th, 10th, and 11th, and again at the Wisconsin Film Festival April 14th and 15th.  For more info check out their site.

Quick update:

First off, thank you for all the great emails.  I really appreciate all the feedback, support, etc.

I’m still available for commissioned work.  Do you like the work I did with Calvin and Hobbes, and want something similar made?  Don’t be afraid to contact me via email realcalvinandhobbes@gmail.com

I look forward to hearing from you, and please, don’t hesitate to email me, and please feel free to ask me anything.
