Mark May King – King of drawing

Sketcher of contemporary life, mmk’s career as an artist is surprising given his parents hoped he would take over their successful penny arcade on the pier at Cuddleton beach. “It took a while before they would talk to me again, and by a while I mean seventeen years. But since my work has been selling for thousands of pounds they seem to have forgiven me.”

mmk has two styles, black and white and black and white and colour. “I am inspired by everything I see, which is great as I never run out of subjects. I am deeply inspired by the line art of 16th century female genius Matilda Suggerio, as well as the famous cartoons by Godolphin Sasso in the Medici holiday palace near Leghorn.”
