David's Bio-

Hello. I'm originally from Stirling, a small city in Scotland. I attended high school, went to college and, in 2004, graduated with a BA in graphic design. Soon afterwards, I returned to my first love of drawing and began exhibiting my personal artwork in various group exhibitions. I slowly built up my freelance illustration business while paying the bills with various other jobs and made the shift to working for myself full time in early 2012. I currently live with my wife Alex in Glasgow, where I work from my home studio.

During a typical week, most of my time is spent on freelance illustration / design commissions for publications and individuals. I been lucky enough to work with some amazing people over the years and I'm very happy to have the opportunity to earn a living by creating artwork.

For the past year, I have been the illustrator for Mary HK Choi's column in the US edition of WIRED magazine. I also occasionally help out with the graphic design and art direction at Fence Records. Recently, I have designed a limited edition Aberfeldy label for Dewars and created an illustrated overview of Scotland for the social network, Kiltr.

I am a member of Team Recoat, a collection of artists based in Scotland put together by Recoat Gallery here in Glasgow’s West End. As an artist, I have exhibited in various solo and group exhibitions both in the UK and overseas.
