Hi my name is David, I am the CEO and founder of a multitude of growing companies. Everyone who is involved in this beginning have there own, complementary company of there own, with all of there skills, triumphs and failures, all documented, for the world to see. T-Shirts, Drawings, sculpture's albums, mix cd's exhibits, merchandise, online shows, and much much more. Our aim is to set an example of what it means that every person has something that there meant for, and most people have more than one talent that they can showcase. We also agree that it is better to collaborate then to combat. Think about it if one person has a good Idea, why shouldn't that individual share that with the next, who can extend that idea to its next level, to propel the human race in it's self instead of holding it back. I myself am also a spiritual advisor, and teacher of self advancement. Helping everyone understand what life is all about, is what its all about. Knowledge should not be held secret, but should be given to everyone.

I was a school teacher for ten years and then decided to retrain into graphic design. During my study I discovered animation and I was hooked! I have always been an artist and love to make up stories - now I get to combine my two loves through 2D animation. I especially enjoy using traditional media to create the pictures or characters and then moving onto the computer to 'tweak' the images. I prefer stop-motion animation but often use Flash to speed up the process as well. I have drawn and painted since I was able to hold onto a crayon! I love to create stunning images and am working on my own picture book in my spare time. I like to use a blend of traditional media and Photoshop.

Cartoonist/caricaturist/illustrator since 1983. Live "speed sketches" are one of my major specialties, but I have extensive experience in the illustration and cartooning fields, having been published in books, magazines, newspaper, comics, and the electronic media. Mature, driven, fast, and thorough. My artwork always has that "something extra".
