Mark was a fantastic artist, a good guy to talk to and always had a positive vibe around the studio. I know he will be missed around the Stone Arch Glass Studio. When I heard the news, I went through my archives to try to find all the raw video and pictures I could of him and his artwork to give to his young son. During my time at Dana International, I had amassed a great deal of footage and pictures of many of the artists and their work.
I figured, when his son became an adult, he might appreciate it. While collecting the footage, I figured I would make a tribute video as well for a benefit event to celebrate Mark's life. Below, is the finished product. I know Mark enjoyed Hip Hop, Rock and Reggae but, I wanted a tone that was a little more timeless as I made it for his son. It was a difficult decision to pick a tone and I hope I made the right decision.
This Saturday, August 9th, 2014 Stone Arch Glass Studio will be hosting a benefit for Mark's son. If you are in the Twin Cities area, please consider attending. You can find more info HERE.
