Mark, aka TIPPETTURES, began in commercial art, working in layout and design and in advertising (pre-computers!) before moving into designing magazines and computer graphic design.
He has always liked scribbling and in his early career, he drew a host of products for black-and-white reproduction in newspapers and catalogues for a major food retailer, plus created pictorial headings, graphics and magazine illos.
Mark is also a qualified trainer in adult education when he's not pursuing his creative side, namely black-and-white art, painting kids murals and caricature, in which he considers a 'form of social commentary'
