Born in New Orleans and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Dave Correia has been drawing his entire life. Fascinated by comic books, horror films, and video games as a child, the subjects of Dave’s earliest artistic endeavors were often strange, demonic creatures. Disturbing, yet grotesquely appealing, these characters and their fictional worlds fueled his imagination and had a strong, significant influence on Dave’s creative style today. Dave’s illustrations have appeared in commercials, magazines, print ads, and posters across the United States and Europe. His work was widely seen on billboards and vehicle wraps for Scion’s 2007 XD “Little Deviant” advertising campaign and his art graces the album cover of Swedish metal band In Flames’ certified-gold record, Sounds of a Playground Fading. Aside from his freelance artwork, Dave also self-publishes and exhibits his personal work at various comic shows and art galleries across the country.
