Mark has always been one of my favorite illustrators. He’s a consummate craftsman. His work is consistently conceptual & thoughtful, and he comes with fresh ideas and perspective. He’s a joy to work with. If you need it done right, cut to the chase and hire Mark.
If you are looking for an illustrator who will care about your project as much as you do, hire Mark. He’s a perfectionist. He is completely devoted to his craft, and it shows—not only in the final work but in the passion, skill, commitment, and professionalism he brings to the process. He’s also got a unique way of looking at the world, and you will never be bored in a conversation with Mark. Never. The projects Mark illustrated for me were some of my favorites in my sixteen years at Fernbank Museum of Natural History.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mark on several children’s books over the years. He’s extremely professional and incredibly talented. We were always excited to see the final artwork because it was consistently more beautiful than what we imagined. A real gem to work with and one of the best working in illustration today.

Mark’s commitment and passion to share the arts with young people makes him an obvious choice for school presentations. With the skill and versatility of an accomplished presenter, he captivated middle school and high school students as well as engaged a large group of elementary students with drawing exercises. Mark’s relaxed and easy-going demeanor made the students feel safe to experiment with drawing regardless of their confidence level or artistic ability. If you are looking to provide a dynamic memorable experience for your students that promotes literature and the arts, Mark is who you are looking for.
