Steve Mark has been a freelance illustrator for nearly 30 years. That makes him both incredibly experienced and unsuitable for any other work.  And that’s fine by Steve.  Not everyone gets to make a living drawing comical space station department stores, diagrammed cat tongues and intimidating bully bulls.

And in the early 2000’s, Steve attended his first of many puppet festivals.  It opened up a new world in which Steve could play.  Steve now writes, creates (puppets, props and stage) and performs his original puppet shows around the world (provided your world doesn’t go much beyond the upper midwest of the USA).

Steve lives a quiet life of desperation in Minnesota walking three miles every day at the request of his 15 year old dog who attributes her longevity to those aforementioned walks and daily consumption of creek water.  Steve is the father of three and the husband of one.
