Mike Dietz

Mike Dietz has been making funny little drawings as long as he can remember — an obsession he's parlayed into a successful career as an illustrator and animator. After four icy cold years at Syracuse University, followed by several freezing winters and humid summers working in New York City, he finally came to his senses and moved to sunny Southern California. He now spends his days by the side of the pool ingesting vanilla milkshakes and Pop-Tarts (untoasted) while his enthusiastic yet underpaid assistants do all the work… or something like that. Isn't life wonderful?
