About Me

Artist, Animator, Designer, Lover of all things creative.

David is a storyteller at heart. He is a collector of memories and nostalgia; he is a music-maker and a dreamer of dreams. David never stops thinking or sketching. His home studio (and sometimes his desk at work) looks like a meticulously organized cross between a toy store and a cabinet of curiosity, Even the snozzberries taste like snozzberries! A multi-disciplined artist, animator and designer, David is all about creativity. He has earned degrees in both fine art and media arts not to mention a few professional awards. David's heroes are Jim Henson, Walt Disney, Maurice Sendak and #7 The Mick. David feels true art, dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple.

PLEASE READ BELOW, it's no fun to answer the same question 100 times.

My rate is as follows:

$75.00 - $100.00 an hour based complexity, scope, desired due date and final intention.

Example: If the work is for fun/arts sake and not a means of revenue generation your rate will be lower but NEVER lower than $50 and hour. If the work is for a magazine or to be sold or printed then you will be in the $75-$100 range.


I do not negotiate rates nor is what I do at my skill level cheap or easy. The work you see (save a few lesser pieces) takes years of experience and expertise. If you want "simple" work for a low price you've come to the wrong place. Please understand I'm a very busy working professional with a business to run I simply don't have the time to negotiate or haggle.

If the photos are being provided to me they need to be in camera raw format, have good separation, lighting and resolution. I will not accept sub-par photography or non-professional photo formats.

I will, on a VERY rare occasion, consider highly selective creative collaboration.

Now that the messy business stuff is out of the way, lets make some awesome inspiring work together! :)
