I have drawn portraits of John Popper, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jerry Garcia, Johnny Depp, Mena Suvari, Madonna, Brook Shields and the list goes on not live Sittings obviously… I digress. I had never done a Marilyn. So I took a break from chalk, the brushes and my ‘time suck‘ computer one evening and decided to just sit down and draw…that’s how it all started for me.

A recent pet portrait I just finished of  3 dogs….. no wait…..Once I completed the pet portrait they ended up getting another dog.  They brought the painting back to me and had me to add the 4th. No wait…..Once I completed that pet portrait they ended up getting another dog.  They brought the painting back to me and had me to add the 5th.   These dogs are hilarious.  I even got to meet one in person.  Below are some of the project pictures.  Never a dull moment at Studio Mark Cline Design

I was approached by a client who going to propose to is future wife in the very near future. He had an idea to make it a surprise and this is how it went:
– We met and discussed details..
– I sketched a black and white portrait of the couple…
– We found a Video-grapher…
– We planned a day for the event to occur in Lodo…
– I set up on the 16th st mall acting like a normal portrait artist/street vendor…
– They walked up randomly on me doing a portrait and she had quite the surprise waiting for her…
– It was a fun and creative project…

Pet Portrait

This is a pet portrait I just finished of an awesome dog named ‘Scout’. This was a ‘live’ sitting….just kidding.   Anyway, every dog has something totally unique about them and I can always identify with that.  I find a way to bring out their personality in the painting and that’s what makes it fun.

I love heading down to Civic Center park, setting up my easel and a fresh canvas, and just start painting.  Its a release for me and lets me create…… just for fun…
