Jul 28, 2015

Highly acclaimed illustrator Mark Summers was introduced to the art of illustrating with scratchboard back in 1976, and he’s been refining his craft ever since. Therefore, it’s no wonder that Mark’s images have been featured just about everywhere, and that he’s won numerous awards over the years, including three gold and three silver medals from the Society of Illustrators in New York. The level of detail in his scratchboard portraits have amazed people for decades, and continue to do so today.

Mark’s latest portrait, depicting American writer and civil rights activist W.E.B. Du Bois, was recently published on his official Facebook page, together with the famous quote: “Believe in life! Always human beings will progress to greater, broader, and fuller life.”
