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
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,
PS: If you haven’t signed up yet for my personal newsletter, now is a good time because I am preparing the next one. (I send them out about 4 or 5 times a year with news and behind the scenes looks at some of the artwork I am currently working on)
Next event: Saturday April 24 2015 / Prochain événement le Samedi 25 avril 2015
Les Héritières de Bacchus is an expo of all-female vigneronnes from all over France held annually in the town of Claret in the Pic St. Loup region.
A degustation of their wines is followed by a sumptuous multi-course meal and musical entertainment. More information on the links below
Logo Design for Les Héritières de Bacchus by Ian David Marsden
<< Trois frères Loup, Guiral et Clair, tous amoureux de la belle Bertrade, partirent en croisade sans savoir lequel d’entre eux elle choisirait comme époux. Au retour de Terre sainte, la bien-aimée avait trépassé. Désespérés, ils décidèrent de vivre en ermites au sommet de trois pitons voisins. Celui sur lequel vivait Guiral devint le mont Saint-Guiral. Il est situé près du mont Aigoual . Celui sur lequel vivait Clair fut nommé le mont Saint-Clair ( c’est à ses pieds qu’est bâtie la ville de Sète). Installé sur le Pic auquel il donnera son nom, Thieri Loup mourut le dernier. Comme ses deux frères, il avait allumé tous les 19 mars de sa vie un feu en la mémoire de sa bien aimée.>>
Pour fêter la Belle Beltrade, nous organiserons, tous les ans au printemps, une journée où les femmes seront mises à l’honneur
