The Journal of an Artist is a bracingly
honest look at a man who chose to honor his authentic path by
devoting his life to art. Must one suffer to create art? Is an
artist's life only unacknowledged work and unrecognized sacrifice?
David's writings, and more importantly - his life and art - say no.
Great beauty can come from joy just as easily, if not more so, than
from pain and suffering.
Born in Italy and emigrated to America

and dramatic delicacy of his work. Having drawn a variety of works,
from movie posters to magazine covers, David is also know for his
