The Art of Yoga 


How does an overweight, forty-something, nerd culture loving visual artist come to create yoga    art? The answer might surprise you. It was at the intersection of Instagram, a daily art making practice, and the health and wellness community where Artist Mike Brennan was inspired to create these yoga portraits.

This book, “The Art of Yoga”, contains not only yoga art that was created during the course of two years of daily art making, but also the profiles and insights from sixteen strong women from across the globe, who are the very yoga practitioners and leaders that influenced the art. The resulting book is a platform for others to tell their stories and experiences alongside Mike’s art. This book is about more than yoga, it’s about community.

Some of his work includes custom “Rockstar” pet portraits, pop culture art, yoga art, live event sketching, original paintings, and graphic design. He also authored / illustrated the book:

" DearSnow: One Man’s Angry Rant Against Winter”. While the media and subject matter may vary, Mike creates art that shares experiences around themes to form connections with his audience. Mike’s artistic journey began as a boy in New York, where he created heartwarming greeting cards for family and friends. He loved seeing people’s faces light up when they received his art.

(He still does.)

Even an early age, he understood the importance of serving others through his art and bringing them value and delight. Interested in commissioning a custom Yoga portrait?
