Mark Franklin’s passion for drawing was evident from an early age and, influenced by the illustrations in his books and comics, specialised in technical subjects.
Joining the prestigious School of Technical Illustration at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art & Design in 1981, Mark was introduced to the Photo-Realist movement in Pop Art. Influenced by Phillip Castle and Michael English, amongst others, he mastered the art of airbrush illustration, along with the exacting geometry of perspective theory.
Graduating in 1985, Mark moved to London to work as a freelance illustrator. A surprisingly smooth transition from airbrush to digital art means that he has been providing a reliable and cost-effective service to a variety of media, print, publishing and advertising clients for over twenty five years.
