Mark Beech – Designer

My name is Mark and I work with Publishing houses as well as self publishers who want lovely professional illustrations provided on time.


Hi, My name is Mark and I am a professional illustrator who has been working in the industry for 20 years. I use tradional illustration methods such as pen and ink and watercolour combined with photosop to produce beautiful, fun illustrations for the children's book market, advertising, and greetings card industries. I work with many publishing houses such Bloomsbury, Hachette, Penguin Random house, Puffin, Harper Collins and many more. I also work directly with self publishers who want to create and publish their own wonderful books. I am lucky enough to be currently collaborating with Sir Terry Pratchetts estate and Penguin to re illustrate many of his fantastic titles. I am also working with Hachette and Enid Blytons estate on many of her fantastic traditinal titles such as the Magic Faraway tree. I have also worked with Mother care, Eve Sleep, Historic Royal Palaces, and the BBC on advertising and publicity campaigns.
