The old “markivancole.com” site was not working. Over the years, I’d tried all kinds of things. It’s been fancier, simpler, denser, more feature rich, gaudy, simpler again, organized, disorganized, confusing, benign, benighted, bedeviled…befuddled…boring…and, finally, broken.
Still wanting to share the artwork, I posted a lot of pictures on my Mark Ivan Cole – Artist page on Facebook, but not everyone wants to go there.
Fortunately, there’s a simple solution…WordPress! (What a relief!)
Will there be only artwork up here? Probably not. I tend to create stuff–all KINDS of stuff–so who knows what else will end up here.
For now, I’m in the process of putting up all of the artwork here, in one form or another. In the meantime, you can still go to (gasp!) Facebook for the most current art. Search for “Mark Ivan Cole – Artist” or click on the FB link in the sidebar on the right.
For those interested in fantasy art, you can find a sampling of my work at http://www.elfwood.com/~mark. When I joined Elfwood back in the mid-1990s, there were four galleries and I was artist #20. Now there are over a thousand galleries and almost 40,000 artists. Mind boggling.
I find it interesting to see what other artists were doing when they were in their early days, just trying things, so I’ll also post some archival stuff, as it seems appropriate.
For more about what’s going on in my head (or my wife, Ping’s head!), check out our blog:

Thanks for stopping by! –Mark
