Brief Summary
Dave Montes' career as an artist started in grade school when he drew what must have been the coolest picture of a ninja turtle of all time. The high school years didn't offer much artistic direction, but he learned everything he could during that time and showed more than a knack for drawing and design. With advice from a friend, Dave attended the Savannah College of Art and Design, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sequential Art and a minor in Graphic Design. To this day, he is inspired by the likes of Bill Watterson, Doug TenNapel, and The Nine Old Men of Disney Animation (as well as a multitude of lesser known but wonderfully talented artists).

Dave was hired right out of college by Disney Design Group, coming onboard as a character artist intern. For the next year, he designed merchandise for Disney parks with a focus on drawing the characters. You may very well see the many pins he's designed if you visit Disneyland or Disney World. After two internship terms at Disney, Dave stayed in the circle as a freelance artist.

He currently lives in Orlando, Florida as a freelance artist doing mostly graphic design. He also develops his own illustrations and graphic novels, and he would love to work with you. I should know. I'm Dave Montes (PLOT TWIST! The narrator is actually the main character!)
