Michael DiPetrillo

After graduating the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in illustration, Mikeatron (a.k.a. Mike DiPetrillo) became an interplanetary illustration mercenary with the intent to laugh, be laughed at, or laugh with.  He is inspired by clouds, stars, stripy things, everyday occurrence of non-sequitur, coffee and cats.  Mikeatron can be counted on to make excellent laser noises and gives first-class hugs.  Mikeatron also knows that he is not fooling anyone by writing his own biography in third person.
