Hey! I’m Michael McManus and Co-founder of M2 Photo and this is how this all started.
In January 2015 I was with my daughters at a church where they took piano lessons. While one was taking their lesson, I’d hang with the other in a classroom. I decided to do a quick drawing on the chalkboard and take a picture of my daughter. From that point on, each week I’d make a drawing.
Eventually, we created a small chalkboard wall in our kitchen. Then my wonderful wife gave me a big wall to play with. This changed my drawings because it gave me more than 45 minutes to do a drawing and allowed me to stretch a drawing out over a few weeks if needed.
If you’re interested in collaborating or commission a drawing please contact me.
Oh and this portrait of me? Taken by my daughter when she was 8! She’s rad.
