Koelsch, Mike

Michael Koelsch (b: 1967) is an illustrator who acknowledges the beliefs of some of the great illustrators of the 50's and 60's, the giants like Coby Whitmore and Austin Briggs, who thought that keeping up with the times and evolving your style is as important as your sense of design and color and the fundamentals of drawing and painting. Mike resides in Huntington Beach, California with his wife, two girls and their Greater Swiss Mountain dog. Living by the beach and having a family he lives in perpetual motion between surfing, club soccer with the girls and actually getting some work done. Somewhere in there there is time for sleep. If you've gotten this far in Mike's bio, you must really want to get to know him. So don't hesitate. Give Shannon Associates a ring and ask for him specifically. He'd love to talk with you about your next project or whether the "evening glass off" session will be worth going out for.
