Allright. Fine. Here’s my bio. Went to Drake University— moved to Chicago and opened Mark Anderson Studios. My illustrations have been in Time, The New Yorker, National Geographic, Newsweek, Outside Magazine, Chicago Tribune and many other periodicals. I have illustrated and designed over twenty books for Triumph Publishing and have illustrated the country’s longest running illustrated advertising campaign for Allstate Insurance. Phew.
From business cards to murals, I love to see how a project takes form and grows stronger from working together with good art directors and editors. I strive to push the boundaries of art and illustration and to design the most refined image, or splatter the paint and let the drops land as they may. If there is one thing that I’ve learned from having my own design firm and illustrating professionally for over 25 years, is that an effective image always comes from it’s level of appropriateness. I approach every assignment with that in mind thus, altering my style as I consider it’s intended audience.
