Newest Deviations


Hey everyone! And a special hello to all the new followers who popped up after my recent Daily Deviation!

I wanted to let you know that I recently created an online store where you can buy a print or digital edition of my book, Brick by Brick-- which contains all the essays I've published so far on deviant art, plus three extra! These essays include “Work to Work,” “Name it to Wield it,” and “Divide and Conquer.”

Please take a look!

Hi, my name's Stephen McCranie, and I'm a cartoonist!

My goal is to make good ideas easy to access, understand, and share. To this end, I create comics with heartfelt stories that are appropriate for all ages. I also try to facilitate the spread of useful ideas by drawing short comic essays about concepts and principles that have been beneficial to me.

Please check out my kids graphic novel series, Mal and Chad:

You might also enjoy my picture blog, Doodle Alley, where I publish my comic essays.

Can you set up the store so military members can buy your book? I'm in the navy so we have to put the address of our ship and not where we are station.

They say anybody can make something simple appear complicated but it's very difficult to make something complicated appear simple. And that's what you do that with your comics.

Thanks Kido! Keep in touch!
to be honest, I'm not a talkative person and not a person of social media (although I'm on the internet 70% of my daily time) just look up for work who inspires me, read journals and some opinions and feedback.
I been reading your art advices some time ago... and I read this Is Is Anyone Listening?by StephenMcCranieand I think that.. you deserve at least one thank you from me (and apologize for not do it before) cause even I can´t find the proper words to be thankful with you, or express how really means for me the day when I read one of your strips for first time (it was "you vs you") remembers me why I wanna do art, and discover why I put back from myself to not doing it
I admire and respect you, because you sir, brings to the community of good advices, and not only how to be a good artist if more how to have your heart into it, and only few do that.

so, thank you, keep going. happy life.
