The Third Dimension

Although Mr. Dancey is best known as a painter, graphic artist and gentlemanly bon vivant, he also sometimes produces the odd three-dimensional object of virtue and utility. In order to best display these items, we here at Iluminado thought it best to add another department to our collection.We are pleased to announce that the new 3-D Section of our site is now open, and we cordially invite you to browse it.

With your entertainment and edification always in mind,

Team Iluminado.

Works Progress Demonstration

Completed in record time in order to be included in Re:View Gallery’s upcoming “Re:Collect” exhibition, here the latest work from Mr. Dancey. Executed in greasy oil on a compact 4.5 inch masonite panel, it is entitled “The Consolation of Philosophy.” Mr. Dancey always does a complete preparatory drawing before transferring the image to the panel, and we have included it here so that you can get a “before and after” view of the piece.

Paintings by Mark Dancey

We here at Ilumindo are pleased to announce the launch of This website will serve as a showcase for the oil paintings of our fearless leader, Mr. Mark Dancey.

Mr. Dancey is well known for his contributions to underground rock culture. A co-founder and lead illustrator of the satirical Motorbooty Magazine, Dancey has produced all manner of graphics during his career, including comics, illustrations, posters, album cover art and book covers. While continuing to deliver the heavy-duty graphic work that the kids have come to expect from him, Dancey has also been developing as an oil painter. After much work and study he has concocted a style that blends classic disciplines and themes with his own influences and narratives.

Although Iluminado has always featured Mr. Dancey’s paintings, we thought that it was high time to present you, the public with a site devoted exclusively to them. will show the progression of Dancey’s work from the year 2000 to the present, with images from the back catalog, news, advice, bald-faced propaganda, and previews of the very newest pieces he is working on. Be sure to check back for weekly updates.
