Skype with author, Mike Artell

Yesterday we were able to meet and talk with author and cartoonist, Mike Artell on Skype. Mr. Artell told us about some of the books that he has written which include short stories, drawing books, and riddle books. He is currently working on a chapter book. We asked him questions like who inspired him and what he likes to do in his spare time. As a child, he always liked to make people laugh. He also enjoyed reading Dr. Seuss books. He did not start to draw until he was 27 and he didn’t become an author until he was 40 years old. In his spare time, he plays the guitar in 2 different bands. He also like to play basketball, hang out with friends, and spend time with his 3 grandchildren. A the end, Mr. Artell showed us how to draw a few cartoon characters. Watch the video to see photos. You can learn more about him at Thanks Mr. Artell!
