Michael Reed - SPG by jameson9101322 Michael Reed - SPG by jameson9101322
"Epic...."

It's the Merker! Steam Powered Giraffe's one-man band. Michael plays just about every instrument under the sun, sings and writes songs both on his own and with the band. He may not be in makeup, but he has a ton of character and we love him for it.

As for this painting, I wanted him to look like he was leading the charge so I gave him a period-style AK47 and a steel-jawed grimace. No one messes with the Walter automatons and gets away with it! NO ONE!

This pic with grimace and fire is still the only picture of Michael Reed I've managed to make and still be happy with. /trivia

ERHMEGERD MERKER RERD. I actually really enjoy how badass this looks. You should try sending it to him. He appreciates fanart like this.

I will if you think he'll like it. I did tag him on tumblr, do you think he'll see it there?

Possibly? I haven't been in the spg tag in a long time, but if any of the others see it (they go through the tags sometimes) I think he'll end up seeing it.
