Hailing from Chicago, Dave studied communications design, with a focus in illustration, at Pratt Institute and currently lives and draws in Brooklyn. His work revolves around an intricate attention to detail, inspired by profound storytelling—usually involving the struggle to overcome, and the humor and misfortune behind internal conflict.
Dave engages in book art, story boarding, comics, and pre-production work, but is fascinated with exploring the vast spectrums of art and illustration, and aspires being a creative force in visual narrative.
