David Gildersleeve

David began his long and illustrious art career while growing up in the great state of Texas. Comic books sparked the interest in art and also were his earliest teachers…Batman being a favorite subject during those years. Later he would bounce around from art schools to regular colleges and back again, eventually earning an MFA degree, which led to a teaching position at The Savannah College of Art & Design in their Sequential Art department teaching how to draw comics. He also enjoys painting. He paints subject that invade his subconscious, using a wonky style to help bring the images to life. Using textures and a selective palette, David creates a definite mood in his work that most people refer
to as whimsical.
