Hi, I'm Dave - Until a couple years ago, my artistic endeavors were limited to rough drafts of electrical diagrams and mechanical drawings - you wouldn't see any of these unless you hang out in rail yards, underground tunnels or other industrial locations.  

I woke up one morning and couldn't read or write, or remember a whole lot of names.  NOT a good thing for an engineer.  BUT - seems all these are pretty much left side of the brain activities, while the right side is where all the artistic functions reside.  So I started drawing all kinds of stuff.

I have since (mostly) recovered my ability to read and write and returned to engineering.  Trying to keep the right side going - Thus the art house co-op.

Hi Dave,

thank you so much for your comments on my sketchbook submissions. That is some bio you have - amazing that it happened and great that you have recovered your previous abilities and learnt a new one to boot! I love your take on the theme you've chosen - really witty ideas. New York city rain is my favourite!

Thank you for looking at my book and leaving such nice comments. I wish I had time to scan and upload more but I'm working against the clock just to finish the book in time! I'll try to add more before the mailing.
