MarkDeRoseMusicandArt.com is devoted to communicating through words and pictures my attempt to positively effect those with whom I come into contact through BOTH my visual art work and my music.
Here, on the “art side of things”, you will see many varied examples of how I am attempting to do this – from everyday graphic design applications to the more off the beaten path, functional art installations I produce. All of it is an attempt to produce work that is “positively useful”!
Graphic Design – Focusing on the design of logos, posters, cd artwork and t-shirts, my work has a retro and vintage feel to it. I’m hopeful to make my work useful in any industry that feels my style would be fitting!

T-Shirt Design – What better way to cross promote my music and artwork than on the front of a t-shirt that can go anywhere in the world! All tees are American made, artwork is 100% original and captures the positive vibe and ethos of my music and lyrics.
Cajons/Kidjons – A cajón (Spanish pronunciation – Ka-hon) literally means “box”, “crate” or “drawer”. It is a six sided, box-shaped percussion instrument originally from Peru, played by slapping the front or rear faces. It’s made of thin plywood and has a drum snare fastened inside. It is played with the hands, fingers, or sometimes various implements such as brushes, mallets, or sticks.
Kidjons… they are ALL OF THE ABOVE, just in KIDDO sizes to fit your little one.

Installation/Functional Art – A little while back, I had a project come my way that required me to go way outside my comfort zone and actually design and construct functional art pieces to be used in a restaurant. In the end, I discovered new ways to incorporate my art work into every day useful items!!!
