Remembering Michael Turner

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 27, 2016, 8:08 PM
My friend and mentor passed away 8 years ago today. It was a day that I will never forget, as it was the only time in my life that I've ever had the misfortune of being in a hospital knowing that soon a close friend will pass. It's a very difficult thing and my heart goes out to anyone dealing with a similar situation. Mike, to me, was always this beacon of light, confidence, and strength, and to see him as he was at that time was tragic. But I knew that he left the world better off than it was when he came into it. 

  None of us know the day when we will take our last breath, but we all know that day will come. Please keep this in mind and live your life with the goal of making other's lives better. That is the only legacy that is worth leaving behind. Forget the trivialities that clutter our daily existences, and remember, YOU can leave a lasting and positive imprint on the lives of those around you. What will people remember you for?

Artist | Professional | Film & Animation
United States
I got my start drawing comics professionally in 2004 under the tutelage of Michael Turner at Aspen Comics. My first published work was pencilling Soulfire: Dying of the Light. Following this I worked on several series at Aspen, including Soulfire: DOTL, Shrugged, Dellec, Executive Assistant: ORCHID and most recently Idolized. I also drew a single issue for Marvel, Deadpool Team-Up #890. In 2011 I moved over to the animation industry and have worked as a storyboard artist for Film Roman on Ultimate Spiderman, for Nickelodeon on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles , Marvel Animation on the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, and I am currently a Director at Marvel Animation on Avengers. I love art, and bringing my vision to various creative ventures is my passion.

Yo so when are you coming out with a sketchbook already?
MicahJGunnell Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2016  Professional Filmographer
Hmm...Someday?? I keep planning on it but I'm so busy lately it's hard to find the time. I need to though...I have a lot of material built up that hasn't been published in a sketchbook or anything. Stay tuned...I'll definitely put up an announcement here when I'm going to make another one. Thanks for your interest! :)
