David’s motivation to illustrate started when he was very young and fell in love with children’s books, comics, and animation.
David would spend hours drawing from his favorite characters such as Peanuts, The Pink Panther, and Mickey Mouse. Later on he drew inspiration from Mad Magazine, marvel Comics and as a teenager, Heavy Metal Magazine. Some of David’s favorite artists are comic book illustrators, Charles Vess, Linda Medley, Wally Wood, Mike Wieringo, Craig Thompson and Scott Chantler. As far as children’s books go his favorite artists include Maurice Sendak, Arthur Rackham, E.H. Shepard (Winnie the Pooh) and John Tennie (Alice in Wonderland).
David’s passion for illustration comes from his love of nature based stories in myths and legends as well as true stories about legendary pioneers for people and planet.
