Who I Am and What I Do 8.29.12

My name is Michael Griffin. Graduating from Georgia Southern University with a B.A. in Creative Writing, I now write animation, short films and short stories. I'm working on a novel, BIG GAME HUNTER VOL. 20: THE GOBLINS FROM HOPKINSVILLE, and a collection of short stories, EVERYONE YOU HAVE EVER LOVED HAS DIED IN YOUR ARMS IN ANOTHER DIMENSION.

My animation work includes VALBROOK, a series about the weird and funny world of the Southern United States. I co-created it with Thomas Andrew Lawson, whom I worked with on Nintendo parody cartoons as Tanooki-Kuribo Productions. Those videos, along with the popular MARIO'S DAY OFF series, have reached over five million views on YouTube.

I also edited the fan motion-comic THE DEATH OF SPIDER-MAN made by Arrival Point Productions, adapted from the Marvel comics by Brian Bendis and Mark Bagley (among others).

You can reach me at or if this is the only moniker you want to remember.

If you are from Marvel Comics, I'd love to pitch my take on Rocket Raccoon.
