At 20 years old, Michael foolishly enrolled in Animation school at the Art Institute of Seattle with no drawing experience. A teacher told him, “This would be easier for you if you learned how to draw.” Made sense, so he bought a sketchbook and started sitting in the Metro tunnel every day, drawing people waiting for the bus. This daily sketching began a decade of studying masters and learning how to draw. He became obsessed with drawing and, after graduating from AIS, went to San Diego to study with master artists Jeff Watts and Ron Lemen. After a few years of intense study, he went back to Seattle, continuing to study, exhibiting drawings, and teaching around the city for years, before taking a hiatus. Now in North Idaho, he is drawing and passing along the skill to others again.
