He is proficient in illustration, caricature, cartooning, comic book art, and graphics software such as Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. David has designed an overwhelming majority of the gaming tokens manufactured in the U.S. during the 1990s. David’s professional background also includes designing interior and exterior signs for the Las Vegas casino market, he is currently the editorial cartoonist for the Ottumwa Courier, and he’s since branched off into freelance work doing book illustrations, live caricature, t-shirt design, and privately commissioned work.   is currently hard at work on a series of mermaid illustrations for the Mermaid Tales anthology book; a comic book limited series titled “Clockgirl and the League of Useless Superheroes”;”Pineapple Street” , a traditional newspaper comic strip; and a graphic novel titled “Insanity.” All of these projects are slated to be released through Lucky Thirteen Presents, a start-up indie small press collective.
