My name is Michael Bergland, I'm a self taught artist. I was first interested in illustrating Comic Books but eventually I discovered the art of Story Boarding and Concept Art for Film, Video Games and Television.
As an Artist I found these mediums to be challenging and full of variety, this blog is a display of my current and past works.
