I first laid eyes on Mark in 1978, at The Longhorn Ballroom in Dallas. He was surrounded by young ladies who were rolling his wheelchair around while he was wriggling back and forth, grinning ear to ear; it was their way of dancing. The Sex Pistols were on stage, and the entire joint was electrified. It was a most memorable evening The following year I met Mark in person, not realizing at the time that it would change my life. He had earned his Fine Arts degree at North Texas State, and had his heart set on going to California to earn an MFA at California Institute of the Arts. However, the main obstacle to realizing his goal was-- he couldn't find anyone who'd take him to California. I had been feeling at a dead end in Dallas and was ready for a change, so when he asked if I wanted to move to California, I jumped at the chance. Mark provided the funds for gasoline and lodging, and I provided the car and the muscle to load all our belongings in a trailer-- we headed for Southern California in August, 1980, during a brutal heat wave which had gripped Dallas. Southern California was Shangri-La to us in 1980-- we attended every kind of concert and performance we could find: the Peking Opera at the Pantages Theater, Monty Python at the Hollywood Bowl; Sun Ra and his Arkestra at Myron's Ballroom, the Trinidad/Tobago Steel Drum Orchestra at CalTech, the Talking Heads at the Greek Theater.... etc., etc. Mark enrolled in CalArts that September; I took him to many of his classes, and sat in on some of them. Although the Conceptual artists who ruled CalArts at the time had declared painting and drawing to be dead, Mark went ahead and painted anyway. When he wasn't painting he was writing. And we listened to a huge variety of music from Mark's very large record collection. In Autumn of 1981 Mark found a new roommate, and I enrolled in the Experimental Animation department at CalArts, We went our separate ways, but would occasionally get together for a concert, such as Sun Ra and his Arkestra at The Palomino. I hadn't seen Mark for a few years when in 2000 I heard the very sad news of his death. He had suffered broken bones literally hundreds of times during his all-too-short life, and had been on the operating table too many times. He died of post-operative complications. Mark, you changed my life for the better, and you are missed greatly. Thank you for everything.

Mark has a Facebook page. We have some of his works there. Sorry it's taking so long to put his priceless works out there for people to see. Send a private message on the Facebook site if you want to ask any questions, etc.

Met Mark in Denton. Wonderful person and artist. So hard to find any of his work. Are any shows in the works?

I miss you, Mark. Old friends since Anti-Club days, so 1984 or thereabouts. Would like to get in touch with old friends. Ponee, I'd be interested in Girl Eating Pizza.

Loved his stuff when I was a kid and Peter Gabriel animated his baseball diamond painting. Wish I saw more for sale now that I am old & loaded!
