About the author

Mike Jacobsen

Mike Jacobsen had his first exhibition at the age of three when he drew a powerfully expressive portrait on the wall above his parents' bed. His parents remarked that it left an indelible impression upon them. And the wall. He's been drawing ever since, for clients such as Disney, Apple, TheGuardian, 20th Century Fox and Lonely Planet, always adding a dash of humour whenever he can.
