Michael Schimmel
United States
Born 8-31-1945 at an Army Air Base in La Junta CO. Brought to the Bay Area by my parents who were returning home.
First 5 years in Berkeley and Oakland CA, then grew up in Walnut Creek (east of Berkeley). Graduated Del Valle HS in '63, got my B.S. at St. Mary's College in '67, and, some unkind souls say, been BS'ing ever since!. Went back to school in '69 at U.C. Berkeley, became a student leader, fought on the side of the Committee Against Tuition (and lost, but it was a good fight), graduated with a Master's in Library Science. Went to work at Fresno County Free Library in'71, put in 29 years as a Reference Librarian and Local History and Genealogy Librarian. In April of 1980 married Jane Elizabeth Walker. We have one son, Aaron, who is also on DeviantArt (as an artist, not a kibitzer). Retired early in 2000, largely due to a chronic pituitary-adrenal problem that has only been recently diagnosed. I discovered DeviantArt only recently, but it has become one of my favorite online sites.

Dad, I think you should favorite this artist:

He is a long-time professional comic book artist and has done work for comics like Batgirl and Wonder Woman, among others.
I did, independently a couple of months ago.
