“Mark’s presentation (on being a thriving artist) was primo and helped a great deal. I have changed my way of doing business.”
-David O’Keefe
Caricature Artist

“Mark, the word, ‘thanks’ doesn’t really convey my level of gratitude and excitement of seeing and hearing you in action at the con this week. Your seminar was funny, inspiring, and thought provoking. I especially liked the REAL world examples you gave from your real-life experiences that totally took what you were
saying out of the theory realm and blew to bits any excuses any of us may have held for why we can’t make our dreams come true.”
– Elgin Bolling
N.Y. Artist
