Illustration by Mike Jackson

Mike is an illustrator who enjoys drawing real people, and all the absurdly real things of which they’re capable. Clients include Forbes, Philadelphia Weekly, Magnet, Grid, Philly Beer Scene, Psychology Today, and Phindie. See his work at alrightmike.com, and follow him on Instagram and Twitter @alrightmike.

Mike is a member of Indy Hall, a coworking community in Old City. He has an ongoing mural at the space, where he is trying to paint every member of the community onto the wall. That mural has lead to other mural work in the area.

Mike’s first solo exhibit, 2013’s Fast, for a Catcher, told the story of his upbringing and coming of age through the lens of baseball. He was also one of over 25 artists to contribute to 2013’s Music Inspiring Art group exhibit, and was one of five artists to create pictures based on the words of Adam Teterus in 2014’s Take What You Need exhibit. All three shows were featured in the Indy Hall gallery in Old City. Mike has also contributed to two Crazy 4 Cult exhibits for Gallery 1988 in New York and Los Angeles.

In addition to his illustration work, Mike has over 10 years' experience as a graphic designer and enjoys hand-lettering; as seen with his contribution to the 2015 Next Stop: Democracy campaign, where over 50 artists created “Vote Here” signs displayed around Philadelphia in an attempt to increase voter turnout.

Mike and his wife live in Port Richmond.
