Bio:
Best known for his rendition of the young Elvis Presley Stamp, Mark Stutzman’s illustrations continue to adorn advertising, products, poster, magazines, book covers and more. His work is most often seen in advertising such as Broadway’s “Young Frankenstein The Musical” or David Blaine’s event posters. He has also created artwork for movie products and premiums for Batman, Jurassic Park and Space Jam. He most recently completed his fifth Steven King cover. With clients like the US Postal Service, McDonald’s, DC Comics, MAD magazine, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Time, Esquire and many others, Stutzman has had the opportunity to share his take on the world through his illustrative works. His focus is most often on the pop-culture of our society, sometimes serious or scary and sometimes humorous. Variety is prevalent in his body of work with a common thread being his idealized realistic style.
With his studio, Eloqui, located in the tranquil rural setting of the Maryland Appalachian Mountains, Stutzman and his fellow illustrator and wife Laura, have found what they feel to be a perfect setting. With advances in technology and communication, it was possible for the Stutzmans to locate the studio virtually anywhere and still send sketches instantly via the internet and overnight original works. The close-knit community has been a huge advantage to him where using models is concerned. He has found willing and sometimes anxious friends and neighbors to pose as a body double for a celebrity portrait or be themselves for any number of characters. In his work, you never know whose face or what setting may appear. Sometimes even his own!
Stutzman’s career as an illustrator began after graduating from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1978. His first job was for the local television station, KDKA-TV2. This was a fast paced job with daily deadlines. Being the pre-digital era, Stutzman created on-air news graphics, worked on sets and even painted weather maps all by hand. His celebrity drawings for TV-guide ads eventually landed him a job at a Washington, D.C. advertising agency as a layout artist and staff illustrator. There, he worked on many accounts, producing innumerable marker renderings and seasonal full color illustrated posters for PBS. In search of working on new and different accounts, Stutzman moved to a smaller ad agency outside Washington, where his responsibilities ranged from comp artist to art director. He enjoyed the wide variety of work including creating posters for the Washington, D.C. basketball and hockey teams. At this point in his career, Stutzman began taking on more and more freelance assignments until him and Laura ultimately joined forces to form their own studio, Eloqui. Their modest studio began outside the Washington-Metro area, providing illustration for a varied group of local clients. In 1987, Eloqui was relocated to its current location where geographic boundaries no longer dictated the client base. Stutzman now works with clients from around the globe in the quiet comfort of his remote studio.
As a member of New York’s Society of Illustrators and The Illustrators’ Partnership, Stutzman is a regular contributor to their annual member’s show and has had several works selected for their annual competition as well as a recipient of the Stephan Dehanos award. Stutzman takes a break each year to help young budding artist during a week-long summer art camp he and Laura coordinate and instruct. The focus of the camp is to increase drawing and painting skills and artistic awareness in children from thirteen to seventeen years old. He has volunteered his time by serving on the board of directors for the local arts organization, guest presented for annual career days and produced artwork for local nonprofit organizations. His most recent local endeavor is an 18 by 80 foot historic Mural in Oakland depicting the founding of the town through the B&O railroad.
