Mickey has traced and rearranged imagery to drive his quest to visually narrate our world. He's been a practicing illustrator and graphic designer since 2011. It was then that he was first inspired by Western New York’s architecture and rich history to create illustrations, graphic novels, apparel and fine art. To date, Mickey has worked with four local writers to produce independent projects like "The Life & Times of Grovey Cleves," "A Pie-Eyed Night with Peggy O'Neill,” and most recently "Color Me White", a satirical collection of 58 passages that dissects straight white males and what is often called toxic masculinity—a topic only aggravated by the current political climate. Mickey lives in Allentown, the arts neighborhood of Buffalo, with his husband Robert and our son, Fernando, a mini lop rabbit.
