SEEN IN VANCOUVER #432: “Hot Art Wet City” Interview With Local Artist Mark Illing

Hot Art Wet City shares another interview, this time with illustrator Mark Illing. “I always really disliked the idea of going into art. It seemed like it wasn’t a very dignified profession. So I put all my effort in sciences; into calculus and chemistry and physics…” When it came time to decide on tertiary study, however, he came correct. Illing graduated from Emily Carr – the only school he applied to – this past Spring.
