Residential Pen & Ink


An in-depth study of 1, 2, & 3 point perspective drawings.

Many people describe perspective as being too complicated or difficult to master. 
I will take you through the process step by step and explain what we are doing, and why at each point along the way to help you gain a better perspective on drawing IN perspective.

For the aspiring comic and manga artist in you...

We will  get to explore a more expressive kind of art that allows you the freedom to share your thoughts in a visual format of telling stories. We will discuss Line, positive and negative space, color applications, and style. Not to mention the all-important "script." It's pretty important even for a single panel cartoon!

Where Everybody knows your name.


...or - if you're an aspiring fashion designer or comic book artist...

As we move along we'll arrive at how to create memorable characters and draw people from reference by taking you step by step with each thing.
Drawing principles we learn beforehand come together when drawing things like everyday kitchen objects, hands, feet, eyes, noses, ears. We will visually investigate things like proportion, three point perspective, and other quizzical topics that you may have a desire to draw!
When you have the ability to communicate your ideas visually in this way there is nothing on Earth holding you back from being confident in approaching other disciplines in life such as architecture, engineering or other design fields, because you have already begun to develop core strengths in the elements of creativity those disciplines draw upon. 
Pun intended.



...of course what better way to prove your proficiency then by applying all you've learned into a single fun project.

There’s so much to learn from drawing comic books. Drawing skills are further enhanced as different storylines demand new things to be drawn. It's a unique way to learn more about the time period in which your story revolves while you develop your story and character cast.

Learning How To Create Places From Spaces

For the more advanced skill sets I invite  you to reach out to me on this subject matter. I will show you ways to set up your design drawings, tools and resources you can use to do it, and even a little bit about the plants you might consider. Is it graphics or architecture you're more interested in? There is a wide range of visual communication out there, on which I would be honored to coach you.

Ioughtta Bookit, Student

I'm not not really a testimonial, but I play one online! You know, if I were a real student I'd certainly consider taking classes from Mark as he is a witty smart guy, and punny as heck! Not to mention a fantastic artist whom I might draw so much from for my own art!
