Mark Reeve's first drawing, aged 5, was of a red elephant - an intensive study of Aubrey Beardsley and Marvel Comics ensued, and art college beckoned. First he attended Great Yarmouth College of Art and achieved the rare distinction of failing the course and obtaining a confidential report so bad no other place would touch him. Eventually however, he got his degree in Graphics at Kingston Art College and he has since produced a plethora of work, his folio including everything from D.C. Comics, book covers, storyboards and film visuals, animation, political cartoons (he was political cartoonist on the Mail On Sunday for three and a half years and was awarded the Gillray Cup by The Political Cartoon Society 2004), sculpting and drawing the heads for Spitting Image and designing some sixty characters for itv1’s satirical animated show ‘Head cases’ (2008). He has also art directed, storyboarded and animated a 26 minute animated film for the composer Howard Blake called 'The Land Of Counterpane' (2016).
He does not play golf.
