Whatsup guys!? Hope everyone is having a good 2019 so far! :)


Just a quick update for anyone interested in knowing the Minty Fresh Scoop...mmm (the green chocolate chip kind) ANY-WAYYY!... I've managed to rev up a first design using a heat press method and I now understand what I'll need to get some merch flowing.


Of course, I also would like to continue working on art, animation, and music as always! There's just so little time especially when working a full time job. I'm strongly considering setting up a Patreon with exclusive offers for supporters! Let me know what your guys thoughts on that are! I know a lot of artists do it...it seems to cliche and I honestly hate asking for money from anyone ever...I seriously never do it! ... But its gotten to the point that I need some support to make things happen. #LIFE-STRUGGLES


This being said, what you guys can expect for the upcoming months will be more random art, music, maybe animation?... (that's a whole other story in itself) .


So yeah! Would you guys consider supporting a hard working self taught artist? I promise to deliver quality material whenever possible..if I haven proven that yet. I accomplished a lot so far, but not NEARLY as much as I know I could give!


So this is where I'm at... this is what to expect (for now).


Until then, peace out!...Everyone and anyone reading this...(as it echos into the shadowy abyss)

Many thanks to Newgrounds and fans for awarding me the Inktober prize 2018! It's an honer especially considering that this was my first ever Inktober! Iv'e been managing to work around my busy schedule to make a few sketches here and there, but it's been worth it.

In other news, those who have been following me will see a couple of new projects starting 2019. (art, animations, merch etc.) I'll also be setting up some booths at conventions and trade shows (IL or Chicago), so I hope to see you there! Iv'e also saved up some cash to buy some new printing equipment to aid in the production of Shirts & posters! What does this mean? Well... it means that I'll be awarding some fresh merch for those who care to enter in a giveaway! 

So be sure to check back for the latest content and updates and be on the lookout for some giveaways!

Keepin' it Fresh one day at a time!

Whatsup people?! Minty here with another update. First off, I would like to mention that all of my hard work has finally paid off (literally)...with a new PC upgrade. A much needed upgrade in technology means more art and other goodies! Not trying to pump out art with losing quality, this just means no headaches in the process of my creative ideas.

 

With spring finally upon us, it's about time for some sunshine to lift our spirits and motivate me to create some Fresh art and challenge myself to take on some new projects. Nothing like a Fresh breathe of air and some inspiration eh? So with that said, I hope to find a way to introduce some new techniques and other elements into my art throughout the months ahead. 

 

Iv'e also been contemplating a shop redesign and offering some more variety with products. Maybe I should create a survey to get a feel of what people would like to see....maybe even offer a prize to along with it!? Anyway, I'm working hard, but finding time to create whenever possible. I create for my personal enjoyment, but I also create for you guys as well! I want to move forward with everything I have and give it my all. 

 

Life is always throwing unnecessary obstacles in the way, but I always remember to keep calm and Stay Minty. So if there's anyone out there...I would love to hear from you guys on any suggestions you would like to see throughout my work! Any art, music, or animation ideas...go ahead and comment! Have a shirt idea? Send me a message and I'll be happy to reply!

 

Thanks guys, this is just another quick update...stay tuned for more. Until then, keep calm and Stay Minty!

What's up friends and fellow artists? Figured it's about that time again for an update and all that fun stuff. For those of you who don't know me, I'm just a simple artist who induldges in a wide variety of art forms. Just trying to get by with lifes daily tasks and making time for my true passion, which is to create. 

Iv'e been experiencing delays in my usual consistancies of my creative process due to being over worked and trying to sustain myself on a daily basis. This is uauly the case with most artists out there, as it's not easy to balance the creative/ work life as I'm sure most of you know.

I've experienced a couple of hardships, one being the loss of my father who just recently passed away from brain cancer. Not an easy thing to deal with, but we all have struggles to get over. 

Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know what's going on behind the scenes as well as to inform anyone who enjoys my work, to stay tuned for future projects as I slowly, but surely increase my production and equipment. It's been an exciting learning process the past 2 years, and I'm looking forward for whats to come! 

That's all I have for now. Commsions are open for the time being, as well as any collaborative projects. If you would like to support me and my work, you can visit www.mintyfreshthoughts.com and snag some swag.

Thanks guys. Hope this wasn't too much to read lol... Peace

What'sup folks!? Minty here with another fresh blog post. Figured I would go ahead and give some updates on various things going on at the moment for anyone who is interested...

 

So to start off, we have big plans for the future in terms of designs and collaborations. I have recently gotten a great opportunity to supply Wonderland Smoke Shop, which is a chain located throughout NJ. I created the logo for them in 2014, which is all over their buildings and merch...but sadly it was only a competition at the time. Since then, I have recently been contacted in an effort to collaborate on some hot apparel designs to be sold throughout their locations! Very much looking forward to it, as this will be an excellent starting point for the business!

 

So let's talk more about our plans and what we can do for you! Minty Fresh Thoughts as you may know, is an entertaining multimedia publishing production. "Entertain Your Brain" is our motto. At the moment though, the production is basically being run by one person...that's right. Me! So this makes it difficult to keep up with various art commisions, but I strive to provide exceptional work whenever possible. Recently I have been able to collaborate with some very talented artists who have been a tremendous help as well as great for cross promoting. Keep an eye out for more collabs and feel free to contact me if you feel like working on a project! So what can we do for you?...

 

Well, at the moment I can handle clients in terms of design work and an occasional animation or song. We plan on growing our team and dedicating our talents to inspire others and unleash their inner creativity. With the help of Wonderland and others who support, we can see our business grow and succeed in wondrous ways. Not just for our benefit, but for all of us who think and share alike! 

 

 So if you're a talented artist and is willing to collaborate, I assure you this will be an excellent opportunity! Unleash your creative potential and be one with you inner "Minty Fresh Thoughts"!! Moving forward we will see more art, music, animations, and Minty Fresh Products for all to enjoy and enlighten. 

 

Until then, check back for the latest updates...and as always, stay Minty Fresh!!! 

 

Peace

If anyone has been reading my posts, then you should know by now that I will be releasing an animated music video featuring guitarist Aron Fincke from the original band "Breaking Benjamin". 

Iv'e encountered a few setbacks over the last couple of months, but I'm still moving on. This will be the latest high quality animation Iv'e made in a while and I'm very much looking forward to its completion. I'm going to say this video will see a release within the next 2 months or so...maybe even sooner than that. After this video is done, I'll be starting a new cartoon series as well as animated shorts. 

If Anyone is interested in collaborating on some comedic cartoons, just send me a message! Until then, check back for the latest updates and expect a music video release very soon! Thanks guys
