This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A longtime illustrator for Easyrider magazine, David Mann did numerous depictions of 'Harleys' and their riders, many of them with surreal-seeming backdrops and wide-ranging scenes from crowds watching tension-ridden races to individuals standing by their cycles. 

Mann is from Kansas City, Missouri, and influenced by a father who was an illustrator, began doing pencil sketches in high school.  In 1957, he took a job pin striping at a custom car shop and then, with his father, enrolled in formal art classes at the Kansas City Art Institute.

Spending only a short time in these art classes, Mann then went to Santa Monica, California, where he and a friend took jobs at Bay Area Mufflers.  Some of their serviced vehicles were Harleys, and working on them, he was 'hooked'.  He returned to Kansas City, bought a Harley, joined the biker culture, and began doing paintings featuring Harleys and Harley riders.

One of David Mann's motorcycle companions took a Polaroid snapshot of one of his paintings and sent it to a California publisher of the first custom motorcyle magazine, Choppers, which earned Mann some poster commissions and established his reputation for skilled illustration.  In 1971, at the suggestion of a brother-in-law, he answered an ad from Easyrider magazine, and his future career was launched.

He worked until 2003, and died a year later at age 64 from ill health.
