True North Man

Dec 28, 2020

Would you consider yourself as a creative person? Well, creativity comes in different forms and sizes. It is not just about drawing, painting, sculpting, etc. it is expressing yourself in a way that creates and solves a problem. Some of us might not just recognize it, but each of us is creative in our own ways.  

At a young age, Mike Brennan knew the importance of bringing joy to someone else through his artworks and is still evident even today. Mike is a designer, illustrator, author and a speaker. He wrote the books “Dear Snow: One Man’s Angry Rant Against Winter,” “Dear Human: What Your Dog Is Really Thinking” and “The Art of Yoga”. He also does speaking on his course “Your Artist Journey” and shares his principle on his daily artworks.

Favorite Quote:

"As a kid, I have been doing art like greeting cards and giving them to family members and seeing their faces light up and those were the moments that ignited something inside of me. And realized that I want to do more of this, create something, give it to somebody else and have their day affected, have their lives affected even for a few moments and bring them a smile and a sense of joy."
