Guest Artist

Mark Tedin

Mark was born in Sitka, Alaska, a sublime but wet locale under the North Star. When younger, Mark wanted to be an astronaut. As a result, he started drawing pictures of outer space and flying saucers-soon including monsters and creatures in the illustrations. His appetite to draw grew as the years went by, but it wasn’t until Mark was in Junior High School that he decided to pursue a career in art.

Mark’s freelance work for Wizards of the Coast began shortly after he arrived in the Emerald City. For him it was, and still is, a dream come true: drawing strange creatures and environments and making a living at it!

From 1997 – 2000, Mark also worked on site at Wizards of the Coast as a staff conceptual artist. Since then, he’s also been teaching illustration, visual composition, and figure drawing part-time at the Northwest College of Art near Seattle.

Mark has been freelancing illustrative and conceptual design work for nineteen years and is loving it.
