INSPIRE Speaker Series : 04 Whimsical Illustrations

Updated: Jan 13, 2022

Join MCF Architecture & distinguished illustrator Mark Brewer to learn about the whimsy and art of illustration.

Join me on my path to becoming an illustrator.

See a few of my early drawings and what I'm currently sketching now. I'll talk about the comic books and strips I've inked, my illustrated book on craft beer (Brewology), the labels from Four Seasons Brewing Company, and a few of the drawings I finished for publications including the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek Magazine, and The New York Times over my thirty-year career as an illustrator.


About Mark

A native of Connecticut now living in Pittsburgh, Mark saw his characters first printed each week in his hometown shoreline newspaper at the age of fifteen. Early on he became a distinguished brush inker for such comic book publications as Archie, Warner Brothers, and Disney.

Mark's expressive drawings have been published internationally in distributed print and digital publications including:

  • The Wall Street Journal

  • Wine & Spirits

Mark's focused perseverance and wellspring of creativity have parked his drawings on the cover of Newsweek, The American Conservative, Scholastic, Politics magazine, Strategic Finance, and GolfStyles among others.
