David Wyatt
FameRank: 6

"Davit Wyatt" is an United Kingdom/English commercial artist. Born in Northampton, he was adopted and raised in West Sussex. As a child, he learnt to play the piano; however, his interest in reading and drawing combined into a love of comics.

At 16, he attended art college in Reading, Berkshire/Reading, and obtained his first work doing the occasional page for British comic 2000 AD (comics)/2000 AD. He signed on for a further year at college, but left just two weeks later.

Whilst having some menial jobs, he worked on his portfolio, practiced guitar and played in bands. He created the occasional cover commissions, but was just as keen to make a career in music. After an unsuccessful band tour of Scandinavia, he decided that the rock and roll lifestyle wasn't for him, and moved to Dartmoor to concentrate on illustration.

David has tried most media at some point (collage, Acrylic paint/acrylics, sculpture, thick paint, thin paint), but now mainly produce work on an Macintosh/Apple Mac. The Dartmoor landscape provides inspiration; otherwise his ideas come from everywhere - "watching a film, walking round Sydney Opera house, the dog pulling a stupid face; anything."

Wyatt has illustrated Peter Pan in Scarlet by Geraldine McCaughrean (Illustrated Edition, 2008)
