Mark Summers Original Scratchboard 'Lost'
Mark Summers takes the illustrator’s art back a century by enlisting the wood engraver’s craft to the scratchboard medium. He gives it a thoroughly contemporary flavor, however, in the power of his imagery. Mark was introduced to scratchboard by the revered political cartoonist Duncan Macpherson in 1976. His big break came with a portrait of Douglas McArthur for the New York Times Book Review, and he hasn’t stopped working since.
Mark's peers at the Society of Illustrators in New York awarded him 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.
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. Recently Summers completed a series of illustrations for an edition of the Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol.”
This piece titled 'Lost' was done for Los Angeles in 2009 and is available as an original scratchboard 10" X 8" for $2000.
