David DePasquale

Freelance Illustrator and Prop Designer

David was born in Jersey City and raised in Manalapan, New Jersey. Growing up infatuated with the arts and music, he spent his childhood splitting his time between drawing what he loved and playing his piano and trumpet.

He graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City in 2010 with a BFA in Illustration. After spending the next few years honing his talents and working as a freelance illustrator, he moved to Los Angeles, California in January 2015 to pursue his lifelong dream of working in the animation industry. He began as a Prop Designer for Disney Television Animation, and hasn't looked back since.
