Mark Englert
United States
I’ve been lucky enough to work with companies like Image Comics, Microsoft, Devil’s Due, Hasbro, Kunoichi, and Rubicon Publishing on such properties as Capes, Mighty Man, Savage Dragon, Invincible, Loaded Bible, Hack Slash, G.I. Joe, My Little Pony and Tonka.

Over the years I’ve written, pencilled, inked, colored and/or lettered various graphic novels and children’s books, worked on concept and presentation artwork for Microsoft, DVD covers for My Little Pony and toy packaging for Tonka. For over 10 years I’ve also worked in Prepress for commercial printing. I am proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Quark, Flash, Manga Studio and Office.

I live in Hollywood, California with my wife and our dog, Pixie.

Personal Quote: "Who has three thumbs and loves Star Wars?"
Two days ago, I found out the hard way that the best way to work digitally is to work locally, meaning, when you're, say, coloring a page, it's best that the page you're working be stored on you're main drive, NOT an external drive.

For years, I stored all my art on a separate, external hard drive, leaving my main drive freed up with more scratch disk space and once I was done with a file, it was already back up on an external drive in case I got a virus or something and had to reformat my computer. Seems like a good plan and that worked out fine for a long time, BUT, turns out it's not the best way to do things. Long story short, I worked several hours coloring up a splash page for Hack Slash #2 and LOST it while I was saving the final version. It was not recoverable, the file somehow got scrambled and I was left with an unopenable PSD file. I sat for hours trying to get it to open, but nothing worked and now I'm sitting her recoloring a whole page from scratch, argh!

So, lesson learned, I now work from my main drive, and when I'm done with an entire issue, copy that over to the external drive and delete it from my main drive. I also find, even though my external drive is firewire and plenty fast, that load times and saves are a bit quicker when working from my main drive, so, bonus!


P.S. I attended Jay and Jack's LOST finale party and watched the series end with 2000 fans at the Orpheum in downtown Los Angeles. I managed to make it all the way to the end without shedding a tear, but when Vincent laid down next to Jack, I lost it... sigh.
