Raised near Chicago, David grew up half a block from the candy store in one direction, and half a block from the playground in the other.
Along with a limitless supply of Legos, cartoons, and all genres of books, the resulting high-fructose queasiness is the source for everything he has made ever since.
In addition to making his award-winning illustrations, David has been a teacher, a computer programmer, and he has spent countless hours in the laboratory trying to clone a unicorn for his daughter.
He keeps trying.
He has also been a printmaker, a painter, a sculptor, and he was a contributor to the now-retired Drawn! illustration blog.
David loves walking around in the woods almost as much as he loves to draw and make stuff.
He lives with his family in Moscow, Idaho.
