Mike McPuff x Ivan Perez

Mike McPuff comes in from Fort Collins, Colorado. His work is like a modern day viewing of AAAHH! Real Monsters (the Nickelodeon cartoon). The usage of colors and different aesthetics this talented artist  assigns to each piece would fit greatly with underground themed cartoons.

He has been into art since he was a kid. He started out making little comics. His favorite part of being an artist is being able to create new things that have never been seen. He realized that art was something that he really wanted to do when he saw that he was willing to risk his freedom for his art.  It mad him realize that art was something that he was going to be dedicated to forever. He’s still into art because he finds it fun. Art brings him fun and on some occasions, money.  He defines good art as anything that causes someone to think in a non-typical or new way. 

What was your first introduction to art?
