The art of illustrator and novelist Mike Wehner

Hi. I'm Mike and this is my art, some of it at least. A few years ago I quit my day job to start writing novels. This is exactly what everyone will tell you not to do, but I'm an irresponsible lunatic and if you tell me I can't do something then that's exactly what I'm going to do. I managed to write and publish that first book but during the process there was a lot of down time. I could only walk the dogs so many times with nothing to do all day so I picked up a pencil for the first time and started sketching.

I wanted to see if I could illustrate a collection of silly and offensive poems I'd written whenever writer's block struck. I dug out my copy of Shel Silverstein's "Where the Sidewalk Ends" and proceeded to copy each drawing onto computer paper with a fancy pen I'd received as a wedding gift. It was the first time I'd ever drawn anything and from that moment on I've been drawing, sketching and painting for 8-12 hours a day. All this is a happy accident.

I'm an accidental artist. I've made book covers and company logos. Posters for breweries. Pet portraits. People portraits. Architectural art. Minimal watercolors. I have a full studio with all the paints and all the papers and all the computer stuff. I get weird and what I don't make for others will be available for sale here. Medium, subject matter, style, tone--all of these things will change on a whim in this shop because I am still very much learning and growing and figuring out what my art is.
