On Illustrating Starfoot and Brown
"When I first received the story details, I was very excited. As I read the outline and character descriptions, I could tell this story was going to be fun. It was also clear from the beginning that Rhoda put a lot of time and thought into developing the personalities of the characters. As an illustrator, I welcome an abundance of good material. As I read it and digest it, it begins to paint pictures in my mind. Then I can begin to create the illustrations. I began sending in sketches and illustration ideas, and Rhoda would approve or send back suggestions to make something better. It was one of the most refreshing creative processes I've had in a long time. When you have that, the result is a great finished product."
Mark not only loves bringing life to his own creations, but teaching the craft as well. He has taught cartoon workshops for kids at schools and libraries whenever he has the chance. "They love it when they learn how easy it can be to create a cartoon character of their very own...it makes their day."
Mark resides in Indiana with his wife and daughter.
