My name is Mark Gilchrist. I’m a freelance illustrator, designer, and sometimes writer residing in (extremely) sunny Southwest Florida. My penchant is for fancy words like “penchant” and cartoon, comic, and character design illustration. I think of my drawing style as “ridiculously believable.” Poor use of adverbs aside, I love what I do, and am constantly re-discovering and developing the art. In short, I’m always learning so that each new piece is the next best thing I can possibly do. Let’s make something awesome together.

My goal is to create fantastic, fun visuals that inspire the imagination, move the heart, and fill the eyes with wonder in a way that reflects and witnesses to my beliefs and values, honors the worth of others, and is faithful to my purpose and identity.

Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it. - C.S. Lewis
