Mark Todd: When Is Tribute Not Appropriation?

Mark Todd works in Comic Book Iconography

Mark Todd is a fine artist who pays tribute to the greatsJack Kirby, Steve Ditko and others, while opening up a conversation about image appropriation. As an instructor at Pasadena's Art Center College of Design, he's been a pivotal advocate of fanzines and self-publishing among the next generation of young, California artists.

He's also the patriarch of an art family that includes wife Esther Pearl Watson (of Unloveable fame) and daughter Lili Todd, who by the age of 12 had illustrated an Amy Sedaris book, and by 14 was exhibiting on walls with some of the biggest names in pop surrealism.
