Mike Moran is a New Jersey based artist and children's book illustrator. "Are We There Yet?" is a peek into his humorous world of zombies, down and out mice, sea creatures and more. His work is presented through a variety of mediums from wooden sculptures to prints on bullet-proof glass.
Mike uses humor in his work hoping the viewer gets a smile or laugh and then thinks…I get it. He describes his work as "one part Hanna-Barbera, one part Nickelodeon, add a twist of wry, shaken not stirred.” His art is influenced by the world of animation. He sites The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Top Cat, Mister Magoo, and Steamboat Willie as major influences as well as Disney artist Mary Blair, cartoonist George Herriman's Krazy Katz, and Charles Addams.
Over the years he has had a lot of fun working for clients such as Disney, American Greetings, Penguin
Books, Major League Baseball, and The New York Times. His work can been seen in children's books, magazine's, newspapers, animations, greeting cards, toys, and game packaging.
