"Not All Who Wander Are Lost."
There is no mistaking Hadley’s black and white scratchboard illustrations, vibrant acrylics with unique backgrounds, and his spin on all things Fantasy. Mark Hadley is a self-taught professional who has always aspired to be an original artist. His initial taste of notoriety was in fifth grade, when his first watercolor painting was published in a book.
In 2006, he painted a 15'x30' mural for Skate Reflections in Kissimmee that was shown in the Jackass 2 movie. In 2007, Hadley was the featured artist for the AST Dew Tour in Central Florida. In 2009, he participated in Orlando’s GuitarTown Auction that benefited local charities. He painted his original 'Envy' on a 10’ Gibson Guitar that was featured on Fox 3 News with Heidi Hatch and personally traveled with Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. In 2011, he painted a mural in Florida Tribal Dance and has artwork hanging in Inner Image Ink.
Hadley has created marketing pieces for companies including Taos Ski Valley in New Mexico, Food4Music in Canada, and the Rainbow Pot in England has used 'The Fairie Painting' as their main logo. He has also designed apparel for name companies such as Fox Films, Harley Davidson, and Warner Brothers.
His work can be seen in many shows across Florida and up to Atlanta for DragonCon. At Dragon*Con, he won 1st Place Best Black & White Award for his painting, “Angel of Death” in 2010 and won Best Horror for his painting, "Comfort" in 2011.
