"The Cooks" is my favorite Mitchell, but this is probably my favorite "Just Like Us"

This thread is way overdue. Mike is the man!! His Parks and Recs was my first of his and is dope.
I am still so stoked to have been able to scoop some sweet crap from him at SPX for the second year now!! I picked up a Fat Bird for the girl and cannot stop gawking at it. Also got a Wonky and a sick Sonic scheth. Not sure why but the Fat Bird is quickly becoming my new fav new acquisition. I will post pice later :pint: :pint: :pint:

Mike is my favorite artist. He did a portrait commission of my son about 2 years ago...

I will try to get a better picture of it, but the reflection in his eyes shows he is watching Star Wars.

The final product was given to me as a high res JPEG... I had it printed on metal!
SORRY FOR THE CRAPPY IPHONE PICS

Hector, that commission is incredible. I take it you've given him that tattoo now he a few years older?

I LOVE those fat birds.
