Custom Illustration for a personal invitation based on photographs provided by the client. The people needed to be recognizable and the drawing had to have a connection to surfing and also to wine.
I get a lot of requests for clip-art or stock-art images.
I have made over 900 illustrations available as stock art.
They are available for licensing and download directly through the interface.
I am very excited. I have just received my first proof copy of my new graphic novel “Marvin” from my publisher Schiffer Books.Read more →

I have just put together a collection of items in my Red Bubble shop featuring some of my artwork and drawings that people often ask me about.
(Like the baguette girl, the Fez Man etc.)
The link is here: https://www.redbubble.com/people/iandavidmarsden/shop
You can get all kinds of items from phone cases to framed prints, t-shirts, post cards, stickers, posters, throw pillows and even clocks and bedding.
I hope you enjoy the selection.
Send me a snapshot or tag me on instagram if you buy something, I would love to see what you got and where you placed it.
I will share some of the images in my blog and my social media as well.

It was on December 2nd, 1998 (almost 20 years ago!) that I started my first website “Marsdencartoons.com”.
It evolved over many iterations, and later for several years it also hosted the Marsdencartoons Cartoonist’s Directory which was a popular resource to find links to illustrators and cartoonists all over the world.
Since I don’t only draw cartoons but also create more “serious” illustrations and logos and character designs for various clients all over the world, I decided in 2014 to create my new homepage MARSDEN ILLUSTRATION, which you see before you and which embodies all the various facets of my work in my PORTFOLIO
Such as my personal sketchbook, the first Google Doodles which were created by me, Advertising and Business Illustration, Custom Whiteboard Videos and Explainer Videos design and production, Editorial Illustration, Comics, Logos, Character Design and Mascot Design, Ritzenhoff Designs, Children’s Book Illustration, Wacom Tutorial Videos by Ian Marsden, Packaging Design and some of the album covers I created for La Toya Jackson and Ja-Tail Enterprises LLC.
For a few years it autoforwarded to my new domain, but a few months ago I let the old marsdencartoons.com domain name expire. A fresh new start.
It appears that another company has purchased the domain name marsdencartoons.com and is now putting up a website for Illustration and Graphics.
This is of course perfectly fine and quite normal I guess by Internet standards, although it would be interesting to know who the “Marsden” is who is featured in their domain name. Because one thing I can tell you is that it is NOT me.
For the record, I wanted to state categorically: that I, Ian David Marsden, am no longer the owner of the domain marsdencartoons.com, I am in no way involved in their enterprise, and am not affiliated anymore in any way with marsdencartoons.com. Any transactions with this domain will not include any involvement with me and you will not be purchasing artwork created by me.
If you wish to contact me (Ian David Marsden) regarding graphic design, illustrations or cartoons, then the only official website is this one: www.marsdenillustration.com

Thank you for your continued interest in my artwork and more from my studio very soon.
All the best,
