Mike DeCarlo-- (Archie and Marvel Artist)
Mike DeCarlo is a 4 decade veteran of the Comic Industry.
Trained by the legendary Dick Giordano. He has worked as a penciler, artist and
inker for Marvel, DC, The Simpsons, Disney, BOOM Studios, Warner Communications
and Archie. His best attribute is the ability to draw ANY property in any
style, period or genre.
After graduating Notre Dame High School and studying art for 2
years at Southern CT ST College, he began his professional career as sports
cartoonist for The New Haven Register. He left that position to begin that
apprenticeship with Giordano and after 18 months branched off to begin a solo
career in the comic book industry. Over the next dozen years, he worked
primarily as an ink artist on such titles as Batman, Teen Titans, Green
Lantern, Thor, Iron Man and Conan the Barbarian. In the mid-nineties, his focus
changed to the cartoon/animation genre and worked as an artist on Looney Tunes,
Powerpuff Girls, Ben-10, Scooby-Doo and Pinky the Brain among others. In the
last decade, in addition to the work he now does for The Simpsons comic company
Bongo Entertainment, he works for Disney Worldwide Publishing on Phineas &
Ferb, Marvel Superheroes Magazine and Spider-Man Magazine. Mike also has
extended his repertoire into the digital field, becoming accomplished at
digital inking in Illustrator and coloring in Photoshop.
