Mike Goldstein

Mike Goldstein came into this world drawing! His first drawing was a caricature of the doctor, which he drew while being delivered.

At the age of 3, Mike created his first comic strip called “Willy The Worm”. It included the adventures of Willy in the garden as he avoided birds and looked for the tastiest leaves.

Mike has created and taught workshops for both children and adults (separately) as follows: 

“Life Is A Cartoon” – Humorous Illustration 

“Perspective Without Pain” – Basic principles of 1, 2 & 3 point perspective 

“Dramatic Comics” – All you need to know about how to draw a graphic novel  

“Look At The Size of That Guy’s Nose” – How to draw caricatures 

My Dog Wears Pajamas” – Creating and drawing your own cartoon character 

Mike enjoys drawing mostly cartoons and humorous illustrations. He has taken some drawing courses such as “life drawing” and holds both a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture.

He left Toronto’s rat race in 2014 – not being particularly fond of cheeseand semi-retired to Port Hope where he continues to pursue his passion for drawing, and teaching, with goals to publish some of his works.
