Mark Young

Mark is our illustrator, and he has been doing it a while... well since his dreams of becoming a rock star were dashed by a growing sense of reality.

" It's your turn to change the nappy"

He was led to believe that grown men escape to their sheds or garages, but his escape has always been his work. He is surrounded by inspiring and motivating materials: such as comic books, Star Wars and other iconic 80s memorabilia, and his library of illustration and design reference materials.

His spare time is spent with his family, educating his son in the pleasures of quality films, and playing hour long marathons of peek-a-boo with his baby daughter.

What is a skill you’d like to learn and why?

I'd love to learn how to animate, so I could bring my illustrations to life.

What’s your favourite meal?

Anything involving bacon.

How do you spend your free time?

Free time?!? I've heard others speak of this! I spend my time with my family.

If you won the lottery, what would you do?

Invest the money into the creation of the hoverboard.

What is your most played song on your iPod/iPhone, etc.?

Embarrassingly, the top two are CBeebies TV show themes (it helps my baby daughter to sleep). Track 3, however, is Bleed American by Jimmy Eat World.

If you could witness any event, past, present or future, what would it be?

First man walking on the moon.

If you had a superpower what would it be and why?

Can I just have Bruce Wayne's money?!? If that's not an option then The Flash, I'd get more done.

What was the last picture you took on your phone?

My daughter playing in her teepee.
