Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?
Hello I am Michael Fulcher a self-taught digital and mixed media artist who lives in the Lenoir, North Carolina. My artworks are inspired by comic books of changing seasons and wildlife of the forest. I spends my free time painting, reading comics and art books for inspiration. I have drawing and illustrating all my life. Since I Saw my first cartoon “The Thunder Cats”, and fell in love with art and animation. Ever since then I all ways wanted to become an artist of some sort. I love painting landscapes and nature! Over the years I have learn to draw and paint all on my own! Hopeful one day I can inspire someone to do what they love to do in life.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
I keep my word, its very important to keep your word, Call me old school but a man is nothing if he cant keep his word or promise to someone. Consistency, You have to be consistent in any field in any industry. It don’t matter what it is your doing. you have to keep going, whether its painting a great masterpiece or writing a great novel. I am very dependable, your family and your families name depend on doing the best work you can do. This days it very rare to know a person who is dependable.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
COVID, A few month before COVID happen I lose my job and a local retail store. I was pretty low about myself losing my job no money in the bank, until I started posting my artwork on my social media , Instagram and twitter. I started gain followers and people loved my artwork. Sold a few art pieces along the way. Meet some great people on there and some great friends.
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
The biggest challenge i had to go thought is the lose of my dad David Fulcher. He die of stomach cancer in 2012. It is always a hard thing to live knowing you will not hear or see them again. Knowing you cant go to them for advice, for listen there stories anymore. You have pictures and memories of them but it not the same. You just have to live without them, to keep going, you know. That is what they would want from you. to keep living.
