Hello. I’m Mark. I’ve been an illustrator and graphic designer for years. I went to North Central State College in where I studied Computer Science. MADstudio47 was created a couple of years ago and no; I am not mad, lol :) It stands for Mark Anthony Designs and I actually have a studio in where I write, paint, illustrate and design.

​I am located in the beautiful scenic state of Ohio. I’m married to the love of my life with 2 kids and a spoiled English Lab. I am also a cancer and depression survivor. That was a really rough part of life to go through, but I made it :) and I’m thankful. We are huge supporters of animal charities and Make-A-Wish for kids. When I’m not glued to the computer screen in designing or writing, I love to paint (with various mediums), play piano and spend time with my family. My favorite quote is “creativity is the ability to make, think or see something that did not exist before” and that’s why I love doing what I do in creating all the journals, notebooks, sketchbooks and so much more... so you, in return can be creative. Well, I think that’s about it for me. Thank you for reading and take care ~Mark.
