I am an artist, illustrator, musician, filmmaker, writer, actor, and editor with many years of experience in comics and sequential art. I work very quickly, and my style is adaptable, as is my price per piece, depending on the level of detail requested. Much of the original art you see on this portfolio is for sale too, so don't be afraid to inquire. I have produced many of my own projects over the years under the pen-name David Keye (which I still use), so if you like what you see here, or would like to see something else, please contact me.
