Recently, I've been putting more and more of my work up on my Behance page. There's more there than I had on this site, so I'm referring to that as my main Portfolio now, and have updated this one accordingly. Go check it out!

Solaris Logo
Tonight, a quick Portfolio update. This one features the Solaris logo seen at your right, and a quartet of both recent and not-as-recent business card designs I've created.

Twilight Sparkle Cutie Mark
A fun duo on Downloads tonight if you're into ponies! I may or may not do a full mane six set. Or perhaps I'll branch out and do some other derpy favorites. We shall see. Enjoy!

RPGFan Website Concept (Main)
Another update to the Portfolio brings some unreleased website goodies and more, including the addition of 168 new images to my favorite – and ridiculous – RPGFan Wall O' Graphics.

I've been working on some new projects for the Downloads page, honest! Hold tight.

Moon International DVD Cover
A quick little update to the Portfolio today with some reorganizing and additions. Take a look!

I also recently added large previews to all Download items, to give you a better idea of what each one looks like. More on the way!

Nausicaa (Blue)
I've been on a Studio Ghibli kick recently. If you haven't heard of them, think anime or classic cel-animated Disney, but with the superb storytelling of Pixar. They - and Hayao Miyazaki specifically - make some of the most incredible films out there.

Of the movies I've seen, my absolute favorite is Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. Watching it again inspired me to make a pair of new wallpapers. (and, yes, soon-to-be iPhone 5 owners, they're iPhone 5-ready!)

Mega Man has become somewhat of a second-class citizen at Capcom these days, but he'll forever hold a place in my heart. Tonight I'm posting the first in a series of Mega Man wallpapers, starting with a design based on the original series. I'm sure you can imagine what's next, but head to Downloads to check it out!

The Dark Knight Rises released last week, and it capped off what I feel will, in time, sit beside the likes of Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and more as one of the greatest movie trilogies ever made. I was lucky enough to see a screening of all three movies in a row, and was inspired to make a series of wallpapers, which are now available on the Downloads page. A nice bonus: the square-format iPad versions also double as alternative album artwork for Hans Zimmer's incredible soundtracks (which is what this project started as). Enjoy! These were a lot of fun to make.

You probably know that Twitter has a new logo, and I've updated the footer to reflect this. Thought you should know.

Now that the Downloads page is (lightly) populated, this place is open for business! I'm going to update several of my wallpapers from my old site, as well as add some new ones in time. I also have some other non-wallpaper downloads I've been itching to share. More on that soon!

Welcome to the home of graphic designer and professional coffee drinker Michael Salbato.

I'm in the midst of a full redesign, the first since I launched this new home in 2010. What you probably want to see is my Portfolio, with plenty of new work on display. So have a look around, visit me on the social-ish sites below if you're so inclined, and check back for more, once I get that Downloads page lively.
