My name is Mike Northcutt and I’ve been in prison 25 years for
counts of armed bank robber and related gun charges.
I’m a divorced father and grandfather so a lot of my art goes to my
children and grandchildren.
I’m an artist, writer, jailhouse lawyer and an “Idea guy”. I was born a
VIP: Very ingenious person; but didn’t realize it ‘till I hit my mid-thirty’s.
This has led me to be strongly opposed to mandatory minimums
and injustice in sentence practice.
My main genre of art is my own style kinda “Surrealist” pen and ink
that ́s time consuming and labor intensive but worth the effort. I try
to hide something humorous in these pieces.
However, I’m eclectic. I work in pencil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic; from
realism to impressionism to abstract, I do a little of it all. In all medias.
I also write poetry but rarely as I’ve ventured into writing song lyrics
and a substantial project.
I’ve progressed in my artwork to a point that I love to break the rules
and don’t care for art “snobs”, I do what I love; what makes me and
others happy and try to enjoy life. If you have a good sense of humor,
would like to share ideas or have a “lyrically challenged band” or just
want to write, contact me.
