A California native, Linton spends most days in his travel themed art studio. Winning a Moonbeam Silver Medal and Dr. Toys Best 100 Products for his children’s book and plush toy, The Weebeasts, inspired Micah to devote his career to the creation of children’s books. He has a Masters in Transpersonal Psychology but is working towards a Ph.D. The latest award was from Walden University, an online college, for a grant for Coeur d’Alene elementary.
Some of his academic writings will be published in the upcoming issue of Transpersonal Studies.
Graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design in 1995 with a BFA in Computer Animation, Micah returned to California to create video games for DreamWorks, Electronic Arts, and Activision, where he wrote the original screenplay for True Crime, selling over seven million units worldwide, as well as, art and design work on many titles such as Medal of Honor, Lost World, Small Soldiers, and Vigilante 8.

Derby and Darcy-Recycled Dreams (available for acquisition)
Derby and Darcy-Recycled Dreams is a thirty page illustrated children’s book depicting two brothers who, on a visit to their aunt’s beach-side home, discover rubbish on the beach; setting fire to their imaginations. From sailing the seven seas to exploring the universe, they set out to put litter in its place, and at the same time, invent and construct modern art, space ships, and monsters of the deep.
As the author and illustrator, Linton is looking forward to making this a series of Derby and Darcy adventures in environmentally conscious books.
This is sure to get the wheels turning in every child’s head that reads or has it read to them. In the spirit of Chitty-Chitty, Bang-Bang and The Iron Giant, Linton encourages us to recycle, reuse, and make sure that what cannot be is taken to the garbage dump is not discarded about the earth. Respecting the environment and our neighbors across the planet should start at a young age. Derby and Darcy are only just beginning to show us the way we all can make a difference.
Short videos of Derby and Darcy
