Gotta Get Some Slackart - Michael Slack Art

Would you like to have some Friday fun? Enter the wacky world of Michael Slack. Now here’s a guy that knows how to dream up some crazy characters and outlandish scenes. If Michael’s artwork came to life would you bust a gut laughing or head for the hills screaming?

Michael’s world is fantastically silly and imaginative. He clearly loves what he does and so do we. Wouldn’t it be great to have a Michael Slack creation as an Illustration Pages mascot? Hint – Hint – Wink – Wink …

Here’s something that will surely catch your eye - one of the books Michael has illustrated called, The Flim-Flam Fairies. It’s about some gross, oddball fairies, like the Fart Fairy, Snot Fairy, and Dirty Underwear Fairy that try to over throw the Tooth Fairy to weasel in on her corner of the “under-the-pillow” market. Michael sure is one heck of a lucky guy to be working on such fun projects. He’s also clearly one heck of a talented guy too.

Michael’s art inhabits the canvas as well as the digital world. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute. He allows himself time to spend on his personal drawings and paintings, “moving around the liquids” as he puts it on his Slackart blog. His paintings and drawings have been exhibited in the U.S. and Europe. Most of the time though you can find him doing work for his clients, a list that includes Chronicle Books, Harper Collins, Running Press Kids Books, Hacrourt Childrens Books, Random House, and more. Oh – and let’s not forget the work he does for animation also.

You can make Michael’s world part of yours by purchasing some of his artwork.


  1. Michael's Flim-Flam Fairies sounds fun! I've illustrated 2 fairy books for Best Fairy Books. "The Belly Button Fairy" and "The Fart Fairy." Author Bobbie Hinman, explains the unexplainable on her fairies. There are some images of Bobbie's fairies on my site: http://www.markwayneadams.com/

    I can't wait to read the Flim-Flam Fairies. This is great!
