Biography  
David Shannon


David Shannon was born in Washington, D.C, in 1959. He grew up in Spokane, WA. David liked to draw as soon as he could hold a crayon. He went to Hutton Elementary school where his teachers soon realized that if they let David draw murals it would keep him from disrupting class and their classroom would have some pretty good art on the walls, too.

David eventually graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena where he majored in Illustration. Then he sold his pickup truck and moved to New York City in 1983 to start a career in editorial illustration.

David’s work appeared in many magazines and newspapers, including Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, and The New York Times, as well as numerous book jackets   ...  Displaying 750 of 1482 characters.
