20 years. That’s how long I’ve been following my passion for digital arts. It’s been a long and winding road, beginning with my reading the entire time life book series on photography as a child (ya, I was “that kid”) to exploring different areas of art like color theory, art history, and figure drawing…eventually leading to a Bachelor Degree in Marketing. I know what you’re thinking: wait, what? But stay with me; it all comes full circle.
I immediately dove back into school to study graphic design and web development, knowing full well at that point that the end goal was to build my own business. Naturally there were some corporate gigs along the way because, hey, a guy’s gotta make a living. But after earning my stripes, I eventually launched a successful branding company, which I ran for several years before going full freelance; basically, the full monty for an artist.
In the years since then, my work has been displayed in galleries throughout the competitive SoCal market, featured in respected publications such as the Orange County Register (and many other publications ), and awarded by the Kinsey Institute, B&W Magazine, and OC Weekly. The bigger honor is the recognition I receive from my clients, whether they be local models and creative entrepreneurs, or high-profile names like Tasting Panel Magazine, Boyd Coddington Hotrods, and Glen Ivy Hot Springs and Day Spa. After two decades of working with a variety of eclectic styles, I love that my clients continue to challenge me to push the boundaries of art and design with them. And even after years of professional work in photography, graphic design, and web development under my belt, I still prefer just to think of myself as an artist helping other creatives bring their visions to life.
So, what’s your next project or concept? Let’s talk.
David currently lives in Brea, CA, and also does graphic design work and web development for select clients.
