is a comic book writer/artist, digital media producer and amateur beard-growing aficionado. He began spitefully making comics while attending the University of Toronto after the comics in the school’s newspaper were so bad he shouted, “I could make a better comic!” He did and has been ever since. See? Spite, it’s a powerful motivator! Since then he’s done work for Scientific American, Science Rendezvous, Corus Radio, Comedy Central and numerous comic book publishers. Besides working with CAYF, his current project is Pieces of Eights, a pirate themed, fantasy adventure-comedy. That’s right, PIRATE MAGIC! All of Mike’s work can be seen on his homepage. Except his cooking and his beard. Both must be experienced in person.
