About Mike Royal

As a kid I watched and participated with my dad and his fine art adventure. I would go to all of the art shows I could, sit and paint with him (just picture grade school art here). He would also take me to the Hot Rod and motorcycle shows. I will never forget the show in 1977 we went to when I was 12. I saw a guy airbrushing cars on shirts. I was like WOW that is cool. I brought my dad over and told him this is what I want to do! He already had a Binks airbrush, he called an air pencil. Was only a single action very limited in what you could do. So the next week he bought me a Badger single action off of the tool truck at work. Still a single action but I could control it a little more than the Binks. That day I started airbrushing shirts in my front yard for my friends and nieghbors. The maddness began! Now 30 plus years later I am still airbrushing and have a store located on Luke Air Force Base in Glendale Az, called Airbrushzone LLC. 8 years in the Army and graduating from Collins College with my AA in commercial art, never stopping with my art. Airbrush is my weapon of choice but I still use a multitude of other mediums and tools. Trying to keep up with the times and coming up wit new and interesting ideas is tough. Never really persuing my fine art side because I have been so busy painting shirts, car, motorcycles and the most popular and biggest money maker Goalie Helmets. Come to think of it I could photograph and sell I guess. Ok now the Bio gets tough. Dec 11, 2010 my 16 year old son (who was starting to discover art with me) was murdered by his life long friend. So my art quickly became extremely hard to do, and I started losing business very fast. At the time I had two booming stores in two different valley malls. Since this terrible day I have lost both of my stores but I am very fortunate to have a my fiancee of 7 years. She has lifted me up along with Jesus. Helped me get through this and now I can look brightly to the future. I have a small location at Luke AFB now and I am still getting the helmets and a few other automotive commisions. I pray every day to get through this and now I find myself with time to follow my fine art ambitions and have been blessed to have the desire to paint again. So here I go! I love meeting new friends especially other artist, no matter what the medium. So please drop me a line and share a story or two......
