David also works in Film & TV as a production illustrator / concept artist creating visionary script interpretations, working on major Hollywood projects like HBO’s ‘The Pacific’ ( Speilberg and Hanks), Bender Spinks’s ‘The Ruins’ and Relativity Media’s ‘Sanctum’ ( directed by Alister Greirson and produced by James Cameron (Titanic, Avatar).

He is currently writing and illustrating a Young Adult novel series, a sci fi fantasy set in a near future world of cosplay cloning kung fu and ninjitsu.
David is very well known around Australia for his engaging workshops and speaking engagements in schools, libraries and art schools, particularily for his manga art and writing workshops based on his engaging manga characters based on his novel series.

Recently he won a prestigious Creative Industries Award for BEATS (Business Excellence Awards Tweed Shire) and an episode of the phenomenal world wide art series ‘Colour In Your Life’ was filmed about him and his unique double handed approach to art making.
The judges were influenced in part by his TV ad commissioned by Qantas Airways for their ‘Qantas Cashcard’ in which he drew double handed for a prime time audience of approximately 3 million every week night for a month. The amazing popularity of this campaign led to a commission for David to create a double handed Twitter ‘Vine’ to help launch the first International Tropfest Film Festival.
