ABOUT MARK A. HICKS

  • I’m a full-time freelance whimsical illustrator who has been creating fun, award-winning artwork for books, magazines, and countless other publications for the past 30+ years. When not working on art assignments, I’m a volunteer artist for the National Park Service and other places. I also hike, kayak, invent things, collect old books, and work on my children’s hospital art supply donation project, ArtMends.org.

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • Please go to my websites, MARKiX.net, and WHIMSICALillustrator.com, for more info and samples. (Because it is easier to show you there than to try and explain it all here.) Also glance at my blog, CarefreeArtist.com. It features art and info about current projects.
