Mike Royer: The OG of ‘The Con’

comiccon01.gif If you are not familiar with the name Mike Royer, you are sure to be familiar with his work. A 14 year long Disney staffer, he is responsible for the redesign of Winnie the Pooh in the early 90′s, which since, he tells us, has outsold Mickey Mouse in world wide sales.

Royer, was the first comic book artist to be invited to what was then called The Golden State Comic Con in San Diego in 1970. He told us that they were the first to prove that a comic book convention was viable.

Here he is holding up his design of the character Tigger.

Royer is the recipient of the coveted Comic Con Inkpot Award. He showed us his Comic Con gold card. Which means no glorified hall monitors will yell at him.
