Mike Byers

Illustrator

www.michaelbyers.ca

Duration: I’ve been drawing since I was a little boy. I apparently used every pad of paper in my grandmother’s house turning each one into a simple animation. I started illustrating professionally after I graduated art school a little over three years ago.

Staff: It's me, and my incredibly hard working rep Sari at Levy Creative.

Education: I received a Bachelor of Applied Arts in illustration from Sheridan Institute in Oakville, Ontario, Canada.

Cultural Influences: Men’s fashion, colors, movies, comics, my friends, music, good design, TEDTalks, books, antiques, advertising from the fifties and sixties, great typography, etc.

Environment: My work is done in the cozy studio in my apartment. I live with my fiancée, and our two cats, in the small city of Guelph, Ontario, close to my favorite coffee shop and a wonderful art store.

Philosophy:I try not to take life too serious, so that I can seriously live. Also like my grandfather has said, “The harder you work, the luckier you become.”
