Michael Hale is a creative guy.
He knows this because people have been telling him he was a creative guy his entire life.
They would say, “You’re a creative guy… you should do this project for us!” So he did.
He wrote, designed and illustrated advertising campaigns for print, radio and TV. He designed parade floats, museum exhibits, interactive learning displays, playgrounds, holiday light shows and was even the Creative Director at The Phoenix Zoo.
He did all sorts of creative things, won awards and got more projects that only a “Creative Guy” can do.
Then he realized something. Looking back at his work, all of the things that he was creating were all done for a specific audience… Children.
He then decided to put his “Creative Guy” skills to work on one of his favorite things in the whole world…Children’s Books.
That is what he does now. He illustrated his first Picture Book, “Up Up Up” in 2016. And plans to write and illustrate many more.
