by . September 2nd, 2012


The world of Illustration either traditional or digital is one of the best places to seek inspiration from. What’s amazing is that illustrators are not just merely creative, they have this amazing talent in transforming dots, lines and shapes into amazing pieces of art by using their bare hands. Having said this, let us take a peek on the illustration world by bringing you one talented artist as a part of our very first “featured artist” series. Folks, let me bring you the works of illustrator, David Habben.

Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, David has established a rewarding career as an Illustrator for different projects and art engagements. He’s both working as traditional and digital artist. A laptop connected to an external monitor, a wacom tablet and various inspirations from his faith, friends and family are David’s major tools of the trade. He started getting paid at an early age of 16 and decided to pursue his illustration career.
