David is famous for his incredible ambidextrous art as seen by millions worldwide in an ad for Qantas Airways as well as for the international launch of the prestigious film festival 'Tropfest'.
He has since been in demand at corporate launches and festivals as well as a regular guest at schools, libraries and Literature Festivals.
As a multi-talented artist David creates launch events for corporate clients. He recently worked in partnership with Emirates Airlines and Nissan Ltd to launch a new direct route Dubai to Tokyo with the public creation of manga art on three gleaming Nissan Patrol SUV's at Jumeirah Beach, Dubai.
David is a well known illustrator / writer and he is regularily commissioned to create Manga ( Japanese style comics), Comics and Graphic Novel projects for clients as well as working on his own creations. His latest project was an 8 page Manga for Cochlear Ltd ( inventors of the bionic ear).
David is in demand as a speaker and presenter at Libraries, Schools, Colleges and Literature Festivals as well as at Corporate Events around Australia. He is most well known for his Manga / Visual Literacy expertise as well as for his amazing ambidextrous drawing and painting skills (groups have a number of times given him standing ovations upon first seeing this done!) David of course has a very wide range of artistic skills both tradition, contemporary and digital and regularily presents workshops in concept art for Film / TV and Games Design as well as student and P.D workshops in digital art ( Photoshop etc).
My Artistic Philosophy
"My career has always been not just about open-minded creativity and pushing the envelope but also about making art exciting again, something that fires the imagination and helps myself and others go beyond what they thought possible.
I believe that we have been in the throes of an incredible creative renaissance since the late 90's. Personally I have explored every avenue I could from getting myself a thorough Classical Art education to throwing paint and playing like a post modernist to writing and drawing comics and manga to delving into the digital art realm. My discovery (re-discovery? Apparently Da Vinci did it) of double-handed ambidextrous drawing has been one of the most exciting developments and one that I am constantly pushing into new areas. It is amazing how inspired people of all ages get when they see it done and how quickly they pick up on it's possibilities.
