Artist of the month (May) Mr. David Fleming.
I am Mr. David Fleming from Kansas City, Missouri. I am a drawing and painting teacher and freelance illustrator. I found my interest for art in the pages of comic books during the late 90s. In 2007, I took my first high school art class and it was at that time that I realised art was something that I had an overwhelming passion about. I was never one of those students who was naturally great at art, but it has always been one of the few things that I have felt truly passionate about.
I attended Northwest Missouri State University where I received my degree in Art Education. It wasn’t until after I graduated that I remembered where my passion came from. It was from the pages of comic books and the illustrative creative quality of many of my favorite artists. Since then I have been creating works in mostly ink and have been learning to express my art through high contrast and bold line work.
I officially opened my Etsy shop in 2015 and have been taking commission work and selling my art through my shop and through direct contact on my Instagram. Most of my time is spent doing custom commission work for clients in ink or pencil, but I have also started creating prints that are available in my Etsy shop. In-between drawing, inking, and teaching I have started writing and illustrating pages of future comics that I plan to distribute by self-publishing.
