Michael Knights grew up in a small Upstate, New York community. He attended a local college, and has had an interest in drawing for most of his life.
Michael eventually attended art schools in Boston (The Art Institute of Boston and The New England School of Art and Design), majoring in children's book illustration.
Micecapades grew out of those studies and eventually came to be what it is today. The strip has appeared in a group of weekly newspapers in the Boston area.
