MarcinSFaMarc attended Princeton University where he received a BA in Architecture; then an MFA in painting from SUNY New Paltz.

He worked as a graphic designer in Milton Glaser’s New York studio, before seeking refuge in illustration. At Glaser’s studio, he met his wife and sometime collaborator, designer, Eileen Rosenthal. They have worked together on several design projects, but, more recently, they have been having lots of fun making children’s books together.

Marc’s illustration work can be seen regularly in The New York Times, The New Yorker, and many other national and international publications too numerous and obscure to mention.

Marc has both written and illustrated Phooey! (HarperCollins, 2007), and Archie and the Pirates (HarperCollins, 2009). He has also illustrated many other children’s books, including: Dig! by Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha (Silver Whistle); First, Second by Daniil Kharms (FSG); The Absentminded Fellow by Samuel Marshak (FSG); The Straight Line Wonder by Mem Fox (Mondo Publishing); and The Runaway Beard by David Schiller (Workman).
