Dave Ross

I graduated from the Animation Program at Sheridan College, Canada. After university, I found a more challenging niche pursuing an early interest in drawing and animation. Encouraged by mentors and seasoned professionals within the industry, I enjoy working in story-boarding, character design, composition and layout in animation as well as story-boarding for live action film. I can’t resist the challenge of rendering strange new worlds and fantastic situations on a daily basis — filling stark white panels with scenes rich in depth and intensity!

My dynamic projects for Marvel and DC Comics include: Spiderman, Daredevil, Avengers Westcoast, Batgirl, Catwoman, Punisher, Captain America, Excalibur, Birds of Prey, Aliens, Alpha Flight, Star Trek, and Star Wars: Dark Times.

As a Guest Artist, I have participated at numerous national and international comic conventions and book signings including the following: New York, San Diego, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and PR China.

I recently illustrated a special Iron-man Series for Marvel, a Star Wars project for Dark Horse Comics/George Lucas; teaching figure drawing and sequential arts, and producing commissions for international collectors & clients.
