Mark Summers The Engraver!

Share This Post

October 14th, 2010

mark summers 01 412x400 Mark Summers The Engraver! There are plenty of people who can draw, but not so many who can engrave on scratchboards better than some can draw. Introducing Mark Summers, as a student at the Ontario College of Art in 1976, Mark Summers was introduced to scratchboard by the revered political cartoonist Duncan Macpherson. Soon after graduation, he began circulating his portfolio of portraits. His big break came with a portrait of Douglas McArthur from the New York Times Book Review, and he hasn’t stopped working since.

His peers at the Society of Illustrators in New York awarded Summers the Hamilton King Award for Best Illustration of the Year representing a body of work in 2000, and in 2002 selected him for the Greenwich Workshop’s David Usher Award. These prestigious awards augment Mark’s three silver and three gold medals from the same institution. His work regularly appears at the Society’s Annual Juried Shows and Illustration Books, and he has also been featured in publications such as Step-By-Step, Graphics, Print, Communication Arts Annual, and Applied Arts.

Summers’ client list includes Time, The Atlantic Monthly, Rolling Stone, Sports Illustrated, The National Law Journal, Winslow Press, Barnes & Noble’s “Library of Literary Classics,” and St. Martin’s Press, among many others. His corporate clients include Eddie Bauer, AT&T, Dupont, Major League Baseball, Trammel Crow, and Parker Brothers. In 2001 he completed several illustrations for a permanent, interactive exhibit in the US Government’s Federal Reserve Bank.

As you can see this man has had his share of experience in art and his work is true reflection of his talent.

    I have to question Ian up on their comment as possibly being a little |too rough

  • Sally Crowther

    Mark Summers The Engraver! was especially informative cheers, I consider your current audience might desire way more items of this nature. See that you do not constrain yourself. Multiple writers limit themselves to subjects they consider they are able to do. Be confident you can travel as far as your psyche will permit you.

    I did not understand your second paragraph at all. What on earth do you mean by that? This really is an interesting topic with luck so I want to understand everything you must say. I got not able to find a number of other articles during my search although I’m not very computer literate so that could be why. I hope to see you offer more frequently.

  • trellis plans

    You make a great point in a person’s final paragraph. My spouse and I couldn’t agree more together with your conclusion. Around today’s modern world, your sight on this issue is lacking in today’s youths. We must ensure that our kids find out more on this topic so we don’t lose our goal.
