I never met Mike, but I knew who he was through the Digital Webbing message boards. I was always a fan of his art and just wanted to do something with him. I asked him to do a pin-up of Dana and he obliged me. I was living in Japan at the time and it came up in our discussions a couple of time. We mostly talked about the foods and how beautiful it was there. After he sent me the pin-up, I tried to keep in contact with him because I’d hoped that one day we could work on something together. A series, a one-shot, a short, anything. I just really liked his style.

Unfortunately, he passed away late 2013. I didn’t know him well, but it really got to me. He was definitely someone that I wished I had gotten to know.

Here’s a link to his DeviantArt Page. Check it out. There is some really awesome stuff there.
