About Dave Cooper:

David Charles Cooper’s critically acclaimed comics with Fantagraphics have garnered multiple Harvey, Eisner and Ignatz Awards, and Cooper himself has won an award from New York’s Society of Illustrators. These days Cooper spends most of his time making huge oil paintings for private collectors, and gallery shows in (primarily) Los Angeles and New York. He also creates kid’s books under a pseudonym. He lives in Canada with his wife and two children.

“Whenever Dave Cooper publishes a new book, I would be surprised if 90 percent of the other artists working in the comics field aren’t embarrassed and intimidated by his imagination, originality, and drawing ability.” – Geoff Darrow
