Mike Handley

Montgomery, Ala., U.S.

Back in 1980, at the far-from-ripe age of 19, Mike Handley became the youngest newspaper editor in Alabama history. He's now a magazine editor by day and an artist by night, a combination that pushes him to ponder new and offbeat ways to describe the mundane. He's accustomed to being called strange, but he's never once been deemed boring.
