Mark Englert was born in 1979. The first movie he ever saw on opening day was Star Trek: The Motion Picture and he slept through the whole thing. Since then, he grew up a little, saw a lot more movies, watched way too much TV, spent countless hours reading comic books when he wasn't busy playing video games and has been steadily working as an illustrator since 1999. After working for development at Microsoft, he got married, had a kid and started drawing posters for fun and profit. His future plans include continuing to work on comics, illustrate a lot more posters and to one day stay awake for an entire viewing of Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
