Richard Marks was a stained glass artist based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, who created numerous stained glass windows and installations for various churches, universities, and private clients throughout the United States. He was known for his unique style and approach to stained glass art, which blended traditional techniques with modern design elements to create striking and innovative works of art. Some of Marks’ notable works include the stained glass windows at the First United Methodist Church in Ann Arbor, the First Presbyterian Church in Dearborn, Michigan, and the Old West End United Methodist Church in Toledo, Ohio. He also created numerous installations for private clients, including custom-designed entryways, skylights, and decorative panels.
This lot is a group of 54 hand-drawn cartoons created by Richard Marks. The cartoons were drawn in the 1980s as submissions to various magazines for publication. The magazines he submitted them to included New Yorker, Saturday Evening Post, Playboy, and others. I was not able to find any publications which published his work.
All the drawings are original and include pen and ink drawing and/or watercolor painting. Each piece is approximately 12″ x 10″. Most are on canvas board but a few are on thick art paper. A few have two variations with different wording. Each drawing includes the artist’s signature.
