Who I Am.
I am Mike Lewis, man of many talents, many jokes, and many loose beard hairs. I am 26, but my body feels older (haha). I am a very easy going guy, that’s all about relaxing and enjoying life.
What I Do.
It’s more like, what do I not do, besides trying to be an astronaut. My bread and butter is graphic design & illustration, it’s what I have been doing for the last six years. In my off time I do production on clothing, graphics for my brand FCX:2029 (along with other brands), I film and edit skate videos, as well as skate, take photos, eat tasty food, get tattoos and chill with a good comic or design book.
Where I Live.
I am originally from north New Jersey, it was an hour train ride to NYC and two hour drive to Philly so it was a cool place to live, but it wasn’t the place for me. I lived in Philadelphia, which was a great experience, and a place I still love till this day. As of currently, I am living in Chicago because someone special brought me here, and it has been very enjoyable to say the least.
Why I Beard.
There are many reasons I have a beard, but it all started from one of my favorite pro skaters from my younger years, Mike V. He had a goatee, which I thought was dope, so I grew one. I wore that thing for many years, but after a while, I just stop shaving because of the dreaded neck craters from shaving. I decided to grow my beard out after that point, just cleaning it up here and there. Fast forward to this point in my life, I beard because it is who I am, my beard and I have an agreement, it looks great with a shaved head, and because I am not sure what’s under there anymore. It’s been about four or five years since I last fully shaved my beard, and most people don’t know what I look like without it, and it’s gonna stay that way. (haha)
