Today marks 5 years since the passing of Mike Wieringo. Mike was the first monthly working artist I really latched onto when I started reading comics and drawing, and his work is always in the back of my mind somewhere. I never got the chance to meet or talk to him and very much wish that I had, if only to tell him what an impression he made on me.This Superman and Krypto sketch by Mike is my favorite piece that I own. I’ve talked about it fairly often. It hangs in my office right above my desk and I take a minute just to look at it nearly every day. Instead of just posting the sketch, I thought I’d try my hand at coloring it this year, something I’ve never done.Thanks for everything, Mike.
