About Mike Beckom
From the time Mike Beckom could hold a pen, his dad taught him how to draw and appreciate cartoons. As the years rolled by, Mike’s dad would ask, “So what’re you gonna DO with your talents?” Mostly, Mike didn’t “do.” Until his dad died. On that day, Mike set out to get just one cartoon published to tip his hat to his dad. What began as a labor of love has mushroomed into a nearly two decades-long career of doodles and drawings that have graced the pages of newspapers and magazines in seven states.
