Mike’s work consists of woodcut prints and drawings featuring fantastical imagery of animals and pictographs. His woodcut prints are incredibly detailed. You can really see how much time he spent carefully crafting each one!

There are two series in this show. The first, The Animal Builders, depict mythical creatures known as elementals. Elementals are invisible beings in nature who are responsible for building all creatures from land, air, and sea.

Mike’s second body of work, The Pictographic series uses Asian characters along with images of the animals described by the character.
