Portrait of  Comic Book Creator Todd McFarlane, Taken in his office  at McFarlane Toys

Happy Birthday to Comic Book Creator Todd McFarlane, 3/16/61

Good Monday morning people! I hope you are all staying healthy and doing well, it's seems kind of crazy out there!

I was reminded this morning that today is the birthday of comic book Superstar Todd McFarlane! (thanks David Scroggy). If it's even possible that you are not familiar with his work, you should know that Todd McFarlane is a "comic book creator and entrepreneur, best known for his work as one of the great artists on The Amazing Spider-Man and as the creator, writer and artist on the horror-fantasy series Spawn", and who, along with 5 fellow comic book artists turned the comic book industry on it's ear when they got together & founded Image Comics in the early 1990's, yep, that guy! I was lucky enough to be able to include a photo of Todd taken in his office in my book project "The Artist Within", (the first one).

Happy Birthday Todd!

You can see more photos from the project on my website here:
