Science communicator and illustrator

Hi, I’m Mark: a science communicator and artist!
I love combining my background in microbiology and science communication with my passion for illustrating and writing. This way I can make tricky subjects more fun and easier to understand.

I’m open for both freelance assignments and full-time/part-time work. Let me know what you’re working on and I would love to discuss how I can contribute to your project!

In the news

“Mark Hektor of the University museum of Groningen drew the life of eight iconic scientists in his first ever comic book… (he) managed to squeeze the essence of their stories accurately into a slim album.”


“Mark is a fantastic artist. He has the talent to make difficult subjects comprehensible for a wide audience. Furthermore, his drawings are full of humor and he has his own appealing style. It is nice to work with Mark and he is open to feedback and suggestions.”

~ Arjen Dijkstra, director of the University Museum of Groningen (University of Groningen)

“Mark is an enthusiastic young man who makes beautiful illustrations. He was even able to wonderfully draw a kid version of me at my parents’ farm (for a coloring page), with the sparkling eyes of a future researcher.”

~ Ben Feringa, Nobel prize winner (2016), professor in chemistry

“Mark is an incredible illustrator who can create awe-inspiring pieces of art in a variety of styles. Hiring him to produce different works has been really enjoyable as he is enthusiastic, sincere and collaborative. I look forward to working with him again soon!”

~ Scott Green, software and games developer
