Welcome to my website.
I've been a freelance comic book artist/ graphic artist/ editorial cartoonist/ illustrator for the last 30 years.
Feel free to check out my new series the supernatural western "Shadow of the West
" #1-6 now uploaded. Please click on the link to view.
My wife Monica Sharp & I published our "Chronicles of PANDA KHAN
" comic book series in the 1980's and '90s.
Click on the blue Panda Khan title above to read scans of that entire series and other Brotherhood of P'an stories (like TALES OF THE BROTHERHOOD
) that were published elsewhere,
Monica and I are working on getting all the Panda Khan stories re-lettered and colored and put together as a graphic novel. Details to follow on this website…
Read Monica's blog PANDEMIC to learn what we're doing lately. or go to my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/davegarciaart or see my deviantArt PandaKhan-DaveGarcia
in the meantime…
I'll be at SD Comic Fest October 17-19th in Mission Valley San Diego on their Artist Alley http://www.sdcomicfest.org/artist-alley/
Peter Laird contacted me to adapt the '80's TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES cartoon show storyboards for the very first issue of Archie's Comics TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES ADVENTURES "Return of the Shredder".
I kept working on that series with Michael Dooney, Ken Mitchroney, Steve Bissette, and others in the early years. Pete and Kev asked us if Panda Khan could join the original Playmates TMNT toy line as a good guy action figure. Click this link "TMNT ADVENTURES
" to see original art, photos and more.
I worked with creator Ben Edlund on the original "TICK" comic book series and continued drawing New England Comics spin-offs such as "PAUL THE SAMURAI" and a host of "TICK" comics.
I drew Steven Spielberg's "TINY TOON ADVENTURES" for Warner Bros. foreign publishing.
I've drawn illustrations for Bantam Books, Fox Kids, Starlog Magazine, and numerous regional and local magazine and book publishers.
I work with a number of advertising and design studios in both northern and southern California, working on projects ranging from business logos and mascots, lobby posters, album covers, full color T-shirt designs, to Disney's Vista credit union's annual reports in "comic book" and "Golden Book" form.
I draw weekly editorial cartoons for my local desert print newspaper, the Imperial Valley Press, here in California.
I dig history and westerns. I love B movies, animation, horror, and Sci-Fi.
