A loving tribute to our childhood hero's, JP Patches and Gertrude.
If you grew up in Seattle (or pretty much anywhere in the Pacific Northwest) during the 1960's, 1970's or 1980's you are familiar with The J.P. Patches Show. If not, you're probably a Boris Buddy.This is not the original drawing. This is a color print of the original drawing. I created the drawing with pen & ink and water color, as a commissioned piece of art, for a client in Oregon, However, I've had such overwhelming response to the drawing, I decided to make it available as a print to Patches Pals (and Boris Buddies) everywhere!

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.
