About Me

Just a brief note

Peace My Brotha'

As a freelance artist, I am responsible for everything it takes to get the job done.

No matter what job it is that I decide to take on, I start with a proper workflow. I Follow through with easy management, strong deliverables, swift turnaround time and a beautiful final product. Making sure I achieve ultimate customer satisfaction is a must, insuring the client leaves happy knowing they can return for future art, videos or any updates needed.

Growing Up

Not only did I grow up drawing on walls but I grew up in a very creative household. My mom being a representative for a craft supply company , I had a goldmine of supplies at my fingertips.

Lifestyle

Growing up a skateboarder I was majorly influenced by the counter culture lifestyle that the skateboarding scene has always been part of. I have always loved the idea of a brand that can create unique styles and trends that will cross boundaries, be questioned and stand tall. Some of my favorites have always been Vans Shoes, Stussy & Vision Street Wear.

A Bachelor

At the age of 21, in my “Golden Years”, I decided to go to art school. I was done with traditional college and what was I thinking anyway. In school I learned nothing of what it takes in the real world. Everyday I am schooled on what it really does take. And so continues…The student loan struggle.

Taking on the world

Only 3 years later and fresh out of school, I thought i could take on the world. Again this is a major humbling experience. most of what I do seems amateur and cheap compared to what I see around me when I enter the workforce. What a creative wakening it was in my artistry.

Here I am

Today, I live as a freelance artist. I am not tied to anything when it comes to part time full time or independent contracting. As a diversified artist I am ready to take on most roles in the creative art dept. My Main Role as an artist in the workforce is as Creative Art Director, yet i’m humble enough to clip some images if I have to.

About the Author


Born in San Francisco and growing up in a culture of skateboarding and graffiti, Curtis David learned his craft on the streets of San Diego. Having a love for street art and cartoons, it seems to comes natural to draw crazy whacked out characters that all appear to have something to say. If I didn’t draw them, they would be stuck in my head.”-Curtis David
Specializing in motion graphics and 3D Animation and receiving a Bachelors in Arts degree from The Art institutes of California in Media and Animation. Curtis David has spent the last 14 years honing in on his skills and becoming a master of creative arts and learning the art of multi-tasking. Art Direction has become the focus as his skillset is spanned across a broad spectrum of mediums and styles.
Spending the last 10 years in an out of different studios and projects, Curtis David has mastered the art of of adaptability and staying agile in the project. He knows that it takes a little bit of learning on each project because every piece is unique and individual. It is this concept that keeps the evolution of knowledge coming. Through each step in the process he becomes more in tune and aware of what is needed to get the job done.
Illustrating and Painting is what comes natural to Curtis. “It feels as though he has to draw or he has something to prove as he always with a paper and pencil in his hand. He has always been that way.” -Harriet David (mother).
