From Jennifer Bledsoe, Director, Toledo Public Library

TOLEDO CHRONICLE- Mike Davis has his pencil animation and cartoon drawings on display in the case at the Toledo Public Library. You can see this artistic display through July.

Mike Davis is a 12-year-old 6th grade student at STC Middle School. He became interested in drawing during the summer of 2007. Mike has asthma and several allergies so this limits his outside activities. He enjoys animated movies and decided to try to draw them. Jon Hubner, Mike's 5th grade teacher was very encouraging and let him doodle cartoons on many of his assignment sheets.

Mike's 6th grade home room teacher Bob Graham and Art teacher LaRae Little, have also been supportive of his cartooning. Mike draws mostly cartoons that include anything from Andy Capp to Looney Tunes and The Simpsons characters.

He has recently developed some of his own cartoon characters giving them their own distinct features and personalities. Mike has filled seven sketch books so far and plans to do many more.

He would someday like to visit the cartooning museum in California.

Mike lives in Toledo with his parents William and Laura Davis and his sister Michelle.
