He began working as a caricaturist from at least 1814, initially for other publishers, especially Thomas Tegg, but later usually published the works himself. His business was located on Long Lane from 1832 to 1855. Upon his death in 1855, his publishing business was continued by his widow Sarah and her children until at least 1893, trading as S. Marks & Sons.
