I’m Mike Carpenter (aka Mike Carp). I live in Carson City, Nevada with my wife and dog. I am a drawer of things, rider of bikes, and eater of donuts.
Most recently, my illustrations can be found in Rhino Trouble, by Grant Olsen. The book tells the story of two brothers who use their skills (and a dash of bravery) to ward off some troublesome rhinos.
My second book with Grant, Jasper and the Yeti, will be released in October 2022.
In addition to the occasional picture book, I like to draw monsters, mutants, aliens, and other misunderstood creatures.
