We share Mark’s admiration for artist/designers such as Bawden, Piper, Nash – artists well regarded for their forays into the world of commercial design. Mark has recently completed commissions for Faber & Faber andTate Museums.A children’s book illustrated by a series of Mark’s unique collages will be published by Walker Books in 2012.
