David's Personal Bio:
I grew up in Woodbridge, Virginia a small suburb outside of Washington D.C. From there I ended up traveling the world spending time in both New Zealand and Fiji. I finally ended up in Kansas City, Missouri where I found my passion for illustration and making comics.
Early on in life I fell in love with comics, sci-fi movies and storytelling. While all the other kids my age watched Disney movies I was watching Tank Girl and Aliens with my dad because the stories were always more captivating. I remember at a young age I was always trying to tell stories. Weather it was stick figure animations with Macromedia Flash or stop-motion animations out of clay the one thing they all had in common was my attempt to tell a story. This shows in both my comics and illustrations I create.
During the day I am a full time secondary art teacher at Raytown High. In my spare time I create comics and illustrations for my website and clients. When I begin an illustration my work is very process heavy. I start with pencil sketches, then ink my work and scan it in digitally. After creating a hand painted texture I finish my process digitally in full color. Enjoying the process of creating my illustrations is very important to me as an artist. This is why I have chosen to highlight this portion of my work in my show entitled Prints, Process and Painting.
