Description:
The Professional Artists Group will hold its next monthly meeting at the Philadelphia Sketch Club on Tuesday, November 28th, at 7 PM. The meeting will begin with a period of informal discussions, socialization, snacks, beverages and friendly atmosphere. All Sketch Club Members are invited to attend and may bring friends. There is no charge for this event or need to register to attend, so please add this item to your calendar. The speaker at the November 28th meeting will amaze you with his involvement in many facets of art from fine art to cartoons. Mike Manley is an American artist, most notable as a comic strip cartoonist. He currently draws two syndicated comic strips, Judge Parker and The Phantom. Mike is also known for co-creating the Marvel Comics character Darkhawk. He has worked as an artist for major publishers such as Marvel Comics, DC Comics, and Dark Horse Comics. He co-created in 1991 the Darkhawk series, which he drew for the first half of its run. He has also contributed to other comic book titles such as Batman, Quasar, Captain America, Marvel Universe, and The Power of Shazam! Concurrently with some of his time at Marvel Comics, between 1985-1990, Mike illustrated children's books utilizing licensed characters. For Macmillan Publishing, he illustrated books in their Raggedy Ann and Andy series. For Golden Books and Western Publishing he worked on several children's fun and activity books, with Barbie, He-Man, Captain Power, Tiny Toons, Ghost Busters and the Muppets as some of the characters featured. In 1996 Mike moved into the animation field, first working as a storyboard artist on Superman: The Animated Series for Kids. While working in both comics and animation, he created and edited Draw! Magazine, a twice Eisner-nominated "how-to" magazine published by TwoMorrows Publishing. In 2000, Mike started a new career as an art teacher. He taught in the animation department at the Delaware College of Art and Design (DCAD) until 2009 and became a senior lecturer at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He then enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, finishing his certificate in painting on his way toward completing his master's degree. In late March 2016, it was announced that Mike would succeed Paul Ryan, who had died unexpectedly, as artist on The Phantom daily strips. The choice of Mike to take on the Phantom was endorsed by Comic Strip of the Day.com: "He's one of the few who has found a way to maintain some detail in an ever-shrinking print medium that has driven most artists to a simplified style…"
