He blends photography and illustration while exploring topics such as depression, isolation, and anxiety as well as finding beauty in the unwanted and discarded. His work is fueled by his journey of battling the depths of depression. His hope is that people will find some comfort in examining the darkness and that his work will help people to speak openly and honestly about their own mental health.

We talk about his journey of becoming a full-time visual artist and selling to and developing a fan base all over the world. Mark also describes his battle and journey with depression and how he has leveraged it to create art to help others on their journey. We also take a few detours that will either delight or offend you but nonetheless, it’s a great one.
