A Creative at Home

Switched things up a bit for the February issue of Austin Monthly Magazine. Instead of making a portrait for the “Character” section, which typically features those people doing their part “keeping Austin weird”, this month, I did a portrait for the “Creatives” section, which highlights members of the creative community in Austin.

Mark Bristol was very gracious in letting us come into his home studio for the shoot. Seeing his storyboard art and movie posters he had worked on was a treat. He had told us ahead of time that he was a big fan of Austin Monthly, which always adds another layer of enthusiasm into the shoot itself. 

He came across as a very sincere and thoughtful artist, and I tried to portray that in his portrait. Pick up a copy for yourself, on newsstands now, and read his story, written by Austin Monthly’s Executive Editor, Sarah Thurmond.
