Hi Everybody,

Over the past several years, people have been asking me to teach them how I do what I do. Now the time has come.

If anyone is interested in learning my style and techniques for pencil illustration or traditional oil painting, watch my blog at or my Facebook Fan page for details of my upcoming online classes. I am thinking I will start this in January 2013 and see how it goes (if the Mayan calendar's dire predictions don't interfere, that is). This is still in the planning phase, but I'm close to having it all worked out in my mind's eye.

If you would like to me to add you to the waiting list for this first class, please email my wife and publicist to be added to the list. Classes will be limited at first, due to my workload and availability, so it's first come, first served. I am thinking each class will run for 9 weeks.

Thanks, everyone, for reading.

Sir, your beautiful artwork has inspired me for a long time. Today I discovered that we also share values, and you've inspired me yet again. Thank you for taking a stand. God bless!

This will teach me not to multitask. The last sentence should have read: He ceased to be a character defending just the US decades ago, but it is his belief in Truth, Justice, AND the American Way that has made him someone willing to sacrifice himself in order to defend the world and mankind's right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Thanks for your comments Joe, and to all who have responded. I can not tell you how proud I am to live in the greatest country on this planet. Even with things going as they are we still have the freedom to speak our minds as we see fit. We can pursue our beliefs without persecution ( except for the small minded idiots that think otherwise). And we have brave men and women who are not afraid to stand on the walls guarding our home and our freedom everyday, proud to be America's Finest, without the scale of thanks they truely deserve. They are in the forefront of those that allow us to have the freedoms so clearly defined in the Constitution of the United States, and to that end, the freedom to beleive in Truth , Justice and the American Way. God Bless our Military and God Bless the United States of America

I just read your comments on Superman. I can only second ~Sixus1's comments. The US is not perfect, but the ideal, the intent of the United States as outlined in our founding documents is something worthy of reaching for and aspiring to, and that is what Superman has always stood for. He ceased to be a character defending just the US decades ago, but it is his belief in Truth, Justice AND the American Way that has made him someone willing to sacrifice himself to defend the world and the right mankind to life, property, and the pursuit of happiness.

read your comments on Superman. Thank you so much for standing up for America in the face of DC Comics. It is a breath of fresh air to find a well known artist who believes in who we are and what we stand for, and is willing to back it up publicly. Consider me inspired. -Les

Read your statement at theblaze, great to hear you speak out on Superman's citizenship. Glad to hear from a fellow patriot in the comic biz.
TheBigBadMachine Featured By Owner May 4, 2011
Dave, I love your work. I also wanted to thank you for your truly patriotic statement regarding DC's recent Superman storyline. Superman is an American. DC should be using Superman to build us up in a time our real leaders want to tear us down. Thanks for being a true American and thanks for still believing.
