When Geek-Art and French Paper Art Club first stumbled upon Mark Summers‘ portfolio, they fell out of their chairs.
This US artist has devoted the past 35 years of his career to the scratchboard technique. His career started off primarily in the newspaper industry, with clients like the New York Times, the Chicago Times, the Wall Street Journal and many others. He has worked for every major magazine, and has contributed work for Rolling Stone, Newsweek, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, Sports Illustrated and numerous covers for Time. Mark has contributed covers for most of the major publishers in the world and has collaborated with James Michener and Issac Asimov amongst others. He has also created lavishly illustrated volumes of Poe, Dickens, Moby Dick, Gulliver’s Travels. Mr. Summers has also designed and published 16 stamps for the United States Postal Service, as well as The Royal Mail and Canada Post. His work is best remembered for his decade long collaboration with Barnes and Noble, where he created the visual persona of their stores, doing portraits of famous authors that decorated their walls. Mark has received 6 medals from the Society of Illustrators in New York and has received over 350 illustration awards.
