Mike Monastero is a freelance creator who lives at the intersection of art, humor, and the offbeat.

Hopelessly creative but lacking in ambition and business acumen, his golden years are spent failing at less things than were failed at in his youth. It was G.K. Chesterton who said, "The follies of men's youth are in retrospect glorious compared to the follies of old age." Or maybe it was Johann Gambolputty.

When not hatching out new quirky designs while at work for the man, he spends his time chasing sketchy ideas using a net with big holes, reading books printed on pulp stock, and watching old films at an alarming rate.
