Marc DandoIn Wildlife Illustrator
Marc Dando has painted or drawn since an early age and although achieving the top grades in art at school, he went on to complete an honours degree in Zoology at Nottingham University. The art bug again caught up with him and he moved into a career as a graphic designer. After many successful years in commercial graphics an opportunity occurred to work on various natural history projects, initially in design, but finally into his passion for wildlife illustration.
Coming from a scientific and commercial graphics background his work is varied. Using various mediums; pencil, pen and ink, watercolour, computer graphics or combinations of these mediums; his style is realistic but with an eye for its overall graphical composition. The majority of his work is in illustrations, mainly marine wildlife publications. Sharks of the World took three and a half years to complete with at least half the time taken with research and sketching. In recent years Marc’s computer-based illustration work has increased with many publishers. Although now, when time allows, he tries to work on more artistic pieces which work on many different levels, creating graphic shapes and movements from a distance whilst containing intricate detail on closer examination, but its inspiration is always from nature. His work has been seen in Monaco and The Mall Galleries in London but the majority of his work is publication based and is rarely see outside of books and magazines.
