Once they discovered zines, Mark Todd and Esther Pearl Watson never stopped making them. They've had illustrations in Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly and on CD covers and MTV; they've written and illustrated picture books; their paintings appear in art galleries--and still they keep making zines (and lots of friends while they're at it). They live and work in southern California. Like many kids raised in the 70's, Mark was influenced at an early age by Star Wars and comic books. Unlike many kids, he grew up just a few miles from the Vegas strip, its neon and glitz looming over the city. He graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and currently lives and works in the Los Angeles area with his wife, artist Esther Pearl Watson, their daughter Lili and Mr. Pickles, a lovely French Bulldog.
