For Mike by stratosmacca For Mike by stratosmacca
This is the piece I did that was included in in the Mike Wieringo tribute sketchbook that was sold at Heroes Con 2008.

Since the original drawing I'd done only a few days after Mike passed was just a rough sketch and quite sad, I decided to use the same characters (Jarek and Mike's cat Charlie) for a new piece and add a touch of fun and celebration to it.

In the sketchbook itself, my drawing was placed next to Matt Wieringo's own contribution (Matt, btw, is a wonderful artist in his own right), which was pretty freakin' cool. I was absolutely honored to be a part of this project.

Happy birthday, Mike.

Awh. I love how all three characters are airborne.
