The drawing was created on 11"x 14" Strathmore Bristol (smooth surface) drawing paper, with Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens, an India Ink wash and watercolor (specifically Castle Arts Watercolor Pencils). Originally the drawing was going to be black and white. However as I started out to only highlight the drawing...well, one thing led to another and thus, its in full color! I'm very happy with the results! This drawing has life! This drawing is fun! Most importantly, this drawing makes me happy!

Born and raised in Renton, Washington, Michael Hopkins grew up surrounded the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and aviation history. At an early age, Michael art was inspired by the likes of, Al Hirschfeld, Chuck Jones and Seattle Post Intelligencer Cartoonist, Bob McCausland and of course, aviation.
Michael’s credits his sense of humor and absurdity to Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy and Seattle's own J.P. Patches. The humor he developed, combined with his mastery of caricature, has been bringing smiles to the faces of those who understood satirical humor and consternation to those on the receiving end of his biting satire. Michael has proven over and over again, that the pen is indeed mightier than the sword.
