Episode 16: Mike Lyon

MIKE LYON, a Kansas City-based artist creates meticulously detailed large-scale drawings using marks made by traditional tools manipulated by non-traditional means, usually computers he has built and coded to suit his artistic vision. The ARTish Plunge podcast explores Mike's leadership of the family cattle hide business and subsequent return to art, ultimately becoming an innovator in wood block and post digital printmaking. With an innately curious mind, Mike also creates handcrafted guitars, ukuleles and other furniture, collects Japanese ukiyo-e prints, plays the violin in the Kansas City Civic Orchestra, and holds a 4th degree black belt in karate.Find Mike: Website: Instagram:   @ mikelyonstudioFacebook:  MikeLyon.ARTTwitter:  ART_MikeLyon Guitars: Mentioned:Kansas City Shotokan Karate Club: (visit)  Claude Mellan, “Face of Christ on St. Veronica’s Cloth,” (1649) (see) Post Digital Printmaking: : CNC, Traditional and Hybrid Techniques,  Paul Catanese and Angela Geary (read) Chuck Close, artist (see) Ken Knowlton, artist (see) V.
