Stoke Con Trent extends a warm welcome to a local comic art talent Mike Fyles.
Mike was born in South Wales, went to school in Oxfordshire, then Kent and graduated in the North of England.
He has lived in a number of English towns and cities and currently resides in Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire.
Mike has earnt his living primarily as a teacher but during the last decade he has been able to produce more work as an illustrator, particularly for publishers of New Pulp in North America. This work has also provided him the opportunity to produce cover art for Marvel Comics.
Mike favours, for influence, the commercial illustration of the mid 20th Century that preferred drawing, painting, and narrative to promote story telling in books (which included children’s annuals), magazines and comics.
