Michael L. Robinson Jr. was born an artist. Drawing since an early age, he took to creating with whatever medium he could find, and drawing on anything could find—an index card, a paper bag, lined notebook paper. A kid from the Bronx, his teachers let him stand by the window doodling, as long as he paid attention of course. They let him dream. He started out drawing portraits, but got discouraged when he saw that everyone else seemed to be better at it. So he started drawing landscapes, and as he developed his art, he made people laugh, cry, and inspired them to look beneath what was on the page. Over time, he went from pencil and chalk, to watercolors and acrylics. He thanks his late mother for passing on this gift, and like his brothers, he became a self-taught artist using it as a way to help others dream.
