Phosphor Art are pleased to introduce you to Marcus (AKA Marc Bach) who they jumped at the chance to add to their books! Marcus works with a number of different techniques and materials but his sense of humour always shines through in his often surrealist illustrations. Marcus has won several awards and nominations, most recently Best Fiction Children’s Book at Junceda Illustration Awards 2014 (Spain) and was shortlisted at Jonathan Cape/The Observer/Comica Short Story Prize 2014 (UK).
Marcus says: “I’m in illustration for my devotion to storytelling. Drawing for over ten years and my passion for graphic communication have led me to appreciate other fields such as graphic design and animation. Since I’ve been a member of L’Automàtica (a non-profit letterpress and litho studio in Barcelona) I’ve fallen in love with the printing process, changed my views and acquired new skills to improve my projects”.
