Mike is the probably oldest kid on the block and skribbles with a scratchy old Sainsbury's 2B pencil!!!!

Welcome to Mikes page of Skribbles

All visitors are welcome. Come on in, take your shoes off, help yourself from the fridge and make yourself at home.

You want to know something about me?? Where do I start? I was born at a very early age to my parents. I have NOT been drawing all my life, although I do remember doing one painting, of a lamb (for Easter), when I was about ten years of age, which I was quite proud of, the rest of the time I skribbled like every other kid. In the early seventies I did some cartoon paintings to amuse myself while unemployed and then in the eighties tried my hand at spray/airbrushing custom paint on automobiles. In 1995 I drew the mermaids you see in this gallery for a project involving my '75 Stingray. I did not pick up the pencil again until August 2001, when I was asked if I could draw a fairy. The result was 'Noelani the Fae' that you see below. At about the same time I discovered Elfwood and I started my gallery with Noelani and the '95 mermaid drawings...........

I am regularly asked a number of serious questions, both in my comments and by e-mail. Some 'serious' answers to these questions can be found at my FAQ page..... Please check it out. Don't let this stop you from mailing me though, all will be replied to (eventually LOL).


I was also going to have a link list here to Elfwood denizens that I admire or owe thanks to for one reason or another. As I was re-writing this bio, I realised that the list was just too big for this page. I beg you to see my Credits and artist links page.

Don’t know if it is just me, but when I try clicking your links to "http://www.silentdeath.co.uk/" all I get is a page saying "The page cannot be displayed". Interestingly, the blurb across the top does say "Space is not the only place where no-one can hear you scream", so I am getting something...
I guess it must be me. Darn it!
Oh, great gallery!

Hey! looking at your artwork I am impressed. Also impressed with your knowledge of Classic Mythology. I wonder if I made some suggestions whether you would draw them? Would be interested to see your interpretation of a few. If so please e-mail me at theboltons2008@yahoo.co.uk

I rather like the pics I’ve seen thus far. They are, well beautiful deosn’t cut it but will have to do. 1 The fact that you refer to them as scribles says something about your infinite modesty, an abmirable trait. I though I was the last of our kind ( use a simple pencil to unleash our imagination )
If you would be so kind as to add me as a friend? 13
Once again BEAUTIFUL

P.S. "sting ray" sweet not quite old enough, but sweet none the less

I absolutely adore your art. I stumbled upon this page many years ago. Your talent took my breath away. It inspired me to go to art school, but I never quite developed the skill you have. Thanks for all the beautiful drawings!
