His illustrations can help you meet the myriad challenges of satisfying your clients’ needs – from storyboards, to ad campaigns for today’s hot topics, to packaging. Dave also brings spot-on “kid spirit” to his illustrations for toys and children’s books.
In his newest persona as "Quick-Draw McCoy," Dave draws for the camera on white board to illustrate lively videos that effectively engage viewers with promotional and educational content. And he performs onsite as "artist-on-the-spot" at corporate meetings and events to visually reinforce and energize conceptual discussions.
Dave’s world is home to legions of characters with charisma. From retro chic, to children’s hipster heroes, to contemporary caricatures that zing, to mascots with mojo for corporate branding, Dave creates characters that stand out from the crowd for both commercial and literary projects.
His clients see Dave as the best kind of professional artist. He takes the time to understand thoroughly their goals and objectives. At the same time he works fast and turns around assignments very quickly, which allows him to accommodate demanding schedules.
