    Wow. This is a total honor.


    Mark,

    I owe you a huge thanks for having the vision to create all that you have, whether it be the art or the illustrators workshops. Every artist knows who is responsible for enabling their success. I have had few who left impact on my life. I can honestly and truly say that your efforts in the field of art and education are one of the core reasons why I made it to where I am. I have never forgotten that.

    I am thankful to have you joining us. Truly. Humbly.

    Want to see what I mean when I said it is an honor that we have Mark joining us?

    http://www.markenglishonline.com/shows2.htm#

    This one sentence below says more than my praise ever could, but the link above says it all.

    In 1980, English was the most awarded artist in the history of the Society of Illustrators, and in 1983, he was elected to the Illustrator’s Hall of Fame in New York.

    Wow... I actually spent some time during my Illustration class this year studying his career and work, and what Jason says is true, having him here is a big deal. I think I know where my plasma money is going this week. Unfortunately I won't be able to attend the class live since I have regular classes during the day (I would just skip them, but I can't afford to this close to finals), so I'll have to catch this On Demand. Actually, how many hours it? I may be able to catch the tail end of it.

    His landscapes are actually my favorite... so surreal yet unmistakeably representative... just perfect balance. Great color and texture.

    I am sooooo going to be there for this one! Mark is one of the most influential artist in illustration in decades. Some of you may not know Mark, as he moved off into personal work awhile ago, but for the three or so decades he has been gracing publications, of all sorts, with his images he has rocked the illustration world! Just take a look around, his influence is everywhere. But first do yourself a favor and look him up on the web, you will freak ( in a good way )!

    Mark English

    Mark English is one of the greatest Artists and illustrators who ever lived. His work has elegance and clarity of thought. Mark's work is his own, his own thoughts, his own vision, it is not derivative or an emulation of anyone else.
    I was fortunate enough to walk through a museum once with Mark and listen to him comment on painting after painting. His depth of knowledge and ability to "see" art was astounding. He seemed to be familiar with every artist their career and exactly where this particular painting fit into their body of work. Mark is a modern master!

    It's an online streaming class so all you need is your computer and a decent internet connection.

    I hope everyone realizes how important this is? Seriously!

    Mark English was one of the gods when I was in school, and beyond. I did so many master copies of his work and it constantly eluded me. It was always a major treat to go to the Society of Illustrators and be able to view his work firsthand. He is one of a kind.

    What's so incredible about Mark's work, beyond the most obvious (color, composition, value control, drawing, etc.) is that Mark is, himself, a perpetual student. He never stands still. He's always learning and pushing himself further as an artist.

    He's doing the best work of his career right now! That is a lesson we can all carry with us for the rest of our creative lives. And what's more, Mark is a true gentleman, humble beyond words.

    I can think of no greater honor than being able to watch Mark work. It will blow your mind. He makes everything look so damn easy, like pouring water out of glass for him. But behind all that seeming ease are years of dedication to his art. I learn something every time I watch him work. You really are in the presence of a Master.

    What Mark is talking about has been the grail of so many artists throughout time. Few really get it, but many strive towards this goal: Simplicity. You owe it to yourself to be there on Wednesday.
