I'm still in shock. I look forward every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to Mike's blog. I've gone out my way to get books he draws. He was simply that good. The art was full of energy, life, action. You simply don't get that nowadays. I'd wish that his art would be used as the production art for a videogame or animated show/movie.
Ive been talking junk about drawing more, losing weight and getting in shape. It kinda hit me now. No time like the present, use this time wisely and do what you love. Mike was just that cool dude. And seriously, I've said it so many times in the last couple of days, THIS is what a professional was. Great work, no shortcuts, respect the fans, just amazing.
God bless Mike. I've already cried enough. I've never met him, but I teared up when I read the news. I'm not going to break out my Ringo drawn books for awhile. I need some time and this isn't something you expect.
Thanks Ringo. You are an amazing artist and solid gentleman. Forget the flash in the pan artists who get all the news and such. I'll always respect your work.
Peace. Keep drawing.
