Mr. Quintero gained notoriety at the age of 5 by drawing detailed replicas of Rembrandt paintings on pieces of American cheese. Only a selected few witnessed these masterpieces since he ate the artwork shortly after. Word of his talent spread quickly throughout his hometown and by the time he was in grade 6 he and a colleague were commissioned by his middle school teachers to do a mural of prehistoric animals on the walls of his cafeteria. The teachers paid them with custom built wooden games that were similar to simple pin-ball machines. Mike was the most popular guy in school. 15 years later his talent has only grown, and I will continue to enjoy seeing what he presents to the world.
