Loopy Dave


David Dunstan, AKA Loopy Dave is an Australian-based illustrator whose work has appeared on DVD boxsets, advertising, comics, character design, festival posters, books, children’s magazines, but most important as he says: “When I was much younger, on my mother’s fridge door.” Illustration is both my hobby and my profession, and I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t drawing or painting. How do I stay inspired? Partly the challenge to improve, but it’s also the best way I know how to stay sane with a head full of ideas! I use pencils, fine liners, a scanner, and Photoshop. People think I’m a little strange since I use a mouse for the painting stage and not a tablet, but I’ve done it for so long now, it’s just a thing that I do.
