Meet the Author
Michael is a local artist from the Jacksonville, Florida, area. He was born in Gulfport, MS, and has been drawing faces since early childhood. Beginning in the first grade his papers were filled with doodles of silly faces, both of animals and people. Although he still "doodles" he has completed over 2000 original, creative faces. "I draw faces, faces are what I draw. It may be silly, but it's what I love to do. Everyone has a special gift unique to them. Finding that gift, developing it, and knowing that you are good at it, makes all the difference in the world. I love it because it is fun!
