SportsArt
These are some of the cartoons from the Hattiesburg American and other newspapers featuring various college games between 1979 and 1982. The USM vs. Tulane drawing above was the first sports themed cartoon. It was done by request from the Sportswriter that covered USM athletics and the concept took off from there.




USM vs. Tulane Green Wave



USM vs. Louisiana Tech




USM vs. East Carolina Pirates


USM vs. Arkansas State Indians

During football season, many of these USM cartoons were attached to the car windows of students and alumni driving to the games. The coaches posted his cartoons on the bulletin board in the athletic dorm as extra motivation for the players.
Mike also created original artwork for several of the official game programs.
