Marc Chancer



Born in Brooklyn, New York, Marc Chancer has been drawing for as long as he can remember. He even traces his clean, crisp use of line in his distinctive sketches all the way back to his childhood where he remembers always coloring within the lines of his coloring books.  As his youthful artistic talents progressed, Marc was repeatedly recognized for his artist achievements.  Most notably, as a high school senior, he was chosen as one of only a handful of students selected to participate in an art scholarship program at the prestigious New York University (NYU) where he eventually enrolled after graduating high school attending NYU's Greenwich Village campus.


Marc later left NYU when he received a scholarship to Manhattan's nationally respected School of Visual Arts (SVA) based on a drawing he'd done on an Etch-A-Sketch of several patients and their nurse at a retirement home. Majoring in illustration at SVA he also took extensive course cork in photography, animation, painting, airbrushing and film. While at SVA Marc was fortunate to have studied with prominent fashion illustrator Jack Porter for more than three and a half years.  It's Jack whom Marc credits with having helped him develop his love of the line.






The commercial applications of Marc's talent were recognized early and often.  While still a student at SVA, he was offered work by numerous local and national magazines and other publications including most notably Gentleman's Quarterly and New Ingιnue Magazine.  After moving to Los Angeles in 1980, he continued to work in fashion illustration for several leading LA area department stores and was hired by Paramount Studios to design a pet for the TV series Mork & Mindy.


Although Marc describes his work as basically line drawing, he emphasizes his desire to capture the essence of the model and breathe life into each form"I love the instant gratification of the line and the cleanliness and simplicity of my pencil," he says.  "The work has a lot of air in it and seems unfinished to some, but it's actually meant to engage the viewer's mind to see beyond what's on the page and create their own setting and sometimes even the complete pose," he concludes.  To which we say, 'Congratulations Marc,' your truly remarkable work succeeds on all these levels and more!


The Roosterfish will be displaying several of Marc's homoerotic works through the end of February, so please come down and check them out.
