About Mark Brewer. . .
From feverishly scratching his pen on paper, Mark Brewer has created a flourishing career. As a native of Connecticut, he saw his drawings first printed each week in his hometown shoreline newspaper at the age of fifteen. Currently residing in Pittsburgh, Mark continues to work with a large client base established from his earlier years in New York City. His driven nature led him early on to work at Guy Gilchrist Productions, a licensing studio in which he worked on established characters from the Muppets, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Warner Brother’s, Animaniacs, and Disney. Before finding his whimsically steeped illustration style, Mark worked on some of the most celebrated syndicated comic strips including Beetle Baily, Nancy, Tom & Jerry, and Slylock Fox to name a few. A handful of influences include Ronald Searle, Shel Silverstein, Jim Henson, Ralph Steadman, and George Booth.
Mark's expressive lines and humorous characters have graced the pages of The Wall Street Journal, Wine & Spirits, Major League Baseball, Yankee, The New York Times, Barron’s, and The Washington Post to name a few. Mark's drawings have parked themselves on the cover of Newsweek, The American Conservative, Politics, Strategic Finance, and Golfstyles among others.
Mark has been the recipient of many awards most notably from the National Cartoonists Society, San Diego Society of Professional Journalists, and the New England Society of Professional Journalists.
