Art Print Notes:
I suspect that for many who have called Atlanta home, if they were asked to name just one landmark, the Fabulous Fox would be their choice. I know in my case, I visited the Fox Theatre long before I ever called Atlanta home. It’s an Atlanta landmark whose fame has spread well beyond the city. That grand old theater and its eclectic architecture is certainly a well known citizen of historic Atlanta. And this was the reason it was one of the first places I visited as I sat out to create a series of art prints featuring iconic or landmark Atlanta.
This particular photo is of the lovely vintage red marquee atop the Fabulous Fox Theatre. It has a really striking feel against the deep blue sky doesn’t it? Ah, red and blue, two of my favorite colors in one image!
Like many old fading movie palaces across America, the Fox was very nearly demolished. The Fox was set to make way for a new office tower in the 1970’s, but due to concerted work by locals it was saved and has become a hub of theater goers in Atlanta today. I don’t think many in Atlanta today could imagine an Atlanta without the Fabulous Fox on Peachtree Street!
This fun angle on that great vintage sign still reminds me of standing there on the sidewalk staring up at that beautiful marquee. It wasn’t the last time I would visit the Fox with my camera. In fact, it was the first of many times I wandered that little corridor of Midtown. But sometimes the first try is a clear winner. This dramatic and colorful image remains one of the most popular of my Atlanta landmark prints.
Wonder what past print buyers think?
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.

…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!! Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.

DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. … It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
