Mike for his artwork inspired by and created for weird pulp, comics/graphic novels, and Lovecraftian fiction throughout the years, including The Black Velvet Necronomicon: Black Velvet Cthulhu tome (which is signed and gibbering on my bookshelf at the moment, whispering things to me...).
But most recently, he's re-shattered the wall and once again burst onto the pop culture landscape through a featured spot on MTV's The Daily Geek (also referenced on Deviant Art).
I couldn't be more proud of Mike, who deserves every single bit of recognition that comes his way. He's a true blue (grayish green?) Lovecraftian, a swell guy, family man, and an extraordinary talent.
