Illustrator of the Week: David Mack

July 7, 2010

This week’s artist pushes the envelope of graphic storytelling. Sometimes moving away from the style of the traditional comic book he doesn’t cease to find new and creative ways to tell a story. He is another artist that uses traditional mediums but he uses old techniques in a manner that is fresh.

This week’s artist/illustrator is David Mack

Mack is a painter but his style is unique in that he often uses collage-like work to illustrate. Rather than putting together collages using a computer he prefers to apply objects directly onto his art. Aside from Kabuki he has also worked on Marvel’s Daredevil series. While he is best known for his comic illustrations he is an artist in his own rite with work being displayed in the Los Angeles Museum of Art and other exhibits.
