Final art
Antiques Roadshow is running a special show the day before the election showcasing items related to past presidents that have appeared on the show.
The art is being used as a postcard and online promotion of the show.

I had hoped to play off of some of the historical presidential characters associated with the items as well as some antique hand lettering, shown in my sketches but the producers wanted a more current flavor to the art.

Cover art
This spring I worked on illustrating a fun little book for Bob's Your Uncle. http://bobsyouruncle.com/
The book is called Dinosaur Soup (and other dubious recipes written by children). Quite a lot of funny ingredients and quirky recipes. My illustrations by comparison are quite tame and are meant to highlight in a subtle way some part of the recipe without taking over the text since it is the recipes themselves that are the humor.
The art is quite different from my usual wacky work but I get a charge out of sometimes just rendering the simplest of things
Martin Yeeles was the designer who along with his wife Michele own and run Bob's Your Uncle a wholesale gift and greeting card company.

I have a new site up and running. marksfisher.com Thanks to my oldest son Wylie wyliefisher.com who is a web designer at The Biltmore Estate www.Biltmore.com down in Zimm's neck of the woods. For the last 4 years I have been attempting to redesign the damn thing but always shot off into tangent designs and looks ultimately ending up with numerous 3/4 done concepts. That's when I called in Wylie and he made it happen in a clean simple way. Thanks Kiddo!
