David Aronson lives and works in the Philadelphia area. His quirky, offbeat illustration, drawings and paintings combine traditional media such as watercolor, ink, graphite and colored pencil with digital media and digital collage. His work ranges from whimsical to fantastic, from highly stylized to realistically rendered, and has been called unique and highly creative and imaginative. It mixes lowbrow with fine art elements and often employs unusual juxtapositions. Thematically, David often delves into the realms of mythology and psychology. He has created art for CD covers, music posters and tour t-shirts. David is also a painter and has completed several public and private commissions. His digital animation has been featured on MTV2 and Fuse and his drawings and illustrations have appeared in Silkmilk, Ritual, Inside Artzine, Khooligan, and the anthology Dark Stories by Dark Artists, as well as being exhibited nationally in galleries and museum shows. He is an art teacher, working with both children and adults and teaching several different media, and was once the sole owner and operator of a small art school in the Philadelphia suburbs. He is also a certified hypnotherapist, holistic healer, professional astrologer, and published poet.
