Michael Rhodes took apart grocery bags at the age of five to create pads of drawing paper. Decades later, he still hasn't stopped, although he has switched from grocery bags and crayons to charcoal, paint, pen, ink, and computer. He has taught web designing at Silicon Valley College and has conducted cartooning classes for elementary school children. He has illustrated Tales of The Living Room Warrior, an eight-part fable following the epic adventures of cats from the creation on of the world to the domestication of humans. He is also the creator of Thingies, a fantasy comic book series that details the adventures and perils that a reporter experiences while she uncovers secrets of her universe. His books and art work are carried by Fantastic Comics in Berkeley, Heroes and Villains Comics in Pleasanton, and Solo Comics in the Napa wine country. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Digital Design. His cartoons and artwork are displayed at www.crtoons.com and www.quatumgumbo.com.
