26 Artist Interview - Mike Brennan - Daily Creative Habits change your life

Mike Brennan is a Creator & Communicator, telling stories on pages & stages. His artistic journey began as a boy in New York, where he would construct heartwarming greeting cards which lit up the faces of his family and friends. From an early age, he understood the importance of serving others through his art and bringing them value, an ethos still evident in his creative practice today.

Mike’s portfolio showcases his versatility and creativity. He is known for his custom ‘Rockstar’ pet portraits, pop culture art, yoga art, live event sketching and graphic design. He is also the author and illustrator of three self-published books: “Dear Snow: One Man’s Angry Rant Against Winter,” “Dear Human: What Your Dog Is Really Thinking” and “The Art of Yoga.”

Mike helps fellow creatives and content creators leverage simple, practical steps for establishing a daily creative habit. He does this via public speaking and his course “Your Artist Journey” (www.YourArtistJourney.com) where he shares key methods and principles from his own daily art making practice that spans over ten consecutive years and counting (over 2,555 works of art).  

He studied in New York City and graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology and The School of Visual Arts. Mike has enjoyed working with a range of clients in the past, from major brands including Mobile, Heineken, Chase Bank, Sands Casino, to independent agencies serving boutique businesses like Tuscan/Lehigh Valley Dairies and Sportcraft. His pop culture art was spotlighted on AMC’s Talking Dead, and featured on Syfy.com. His yoga art appeared in ‘The Art of Healthy Living’ exhibit at the I.D.E.A. Museum, Mesa, Arizona. Mike has been a featured illustrator for meowbox, and is featured in Capsules Pictoria Volume 3, The Best Contemporary Illustrators Worldwide. He has had art represented by Galleria Miso, and featured art in the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois.
