David Owens - Designer

Oswego, NY, United States

Professional Illustrator.


I’m a professional illustrator based in Central New York. I love doing great work for wonderful clients. Some of my friends think I draw pictures for a living; sometimes I do.

I began a career as a graphic designer; love that stuff! I specialized in branding and print design, but I know my fair share of web design, photography, and architectural design.

Now I illustrate full-time; working entirely digitally. Photoshop and a Wacom tablet are my brush and easel. I’ve worked with magazines, universities, retailers, in-house marketing, advertising agencies, and publishers. At heart I am simply a problem solver.

I would love to hear from you!
