Last weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con, some of our staff had a chance to meet up with Dave who is also one of the Illustrators of the Future Contest judges.

Dave was certainly busy while we were there, signing posters and books for his fans including this original drawing he was doing for one lucky guy (see video below).

Between signings, he filled us in on his recent projects, one of which was doing the cover for the relaunch of the new Archie. M&M Comics selected Dave to paint a realistic cover for ARCHIE #1 Variant. Dave, who has been a fan of Archie since he was a kid, took up the offer and created an image of Archie that brings that iconic figure into the 21st century. It was a hit with the fans as all the copies at Comic-Con quickly sold out.
