About David Manak....

Dave is truly passionate about doing pet portraits in colored pencil.  Not by just creating a pretty picture but in really bringing out the pet's personality. "What's he or she thinking?" That's the prize--capturing that in every single work.

Dave's first love in art has always been animals. Starting with the first one he knew, his grandparents' Pomeranian and something bigger mix, "Poochie". Poochie and Dave were born about the same time in the late fifties and spent their summers roaming the mountains in and around Nesquehoning, PA.  The rest of the time he grew up and went to school in Pottstown, PA.

In the early eighties Dave moved to NYC and took a job as an editor for DC Comics.  Parting with DC after three years Dave began freelancing and, yes, most of the work had something to do with animals. He wrote Rocky and Bullwinkle, Ewoks, and Heathcliff for Marvel's 'Star Comics' then drew 'ALF' for Marvel (not that ALF was really an animal but he was close enough). After that, he drew Sonic the Hedgehog for Archie Comics. Some of his non-animal work included drawing Spy vs Spy for MAD magazine for several years in the nineties, which was very cool.

  And last but not least on the cartooning end of Dave's career is Cyrano da Burger Rat. You can check out Cyrano in Dave's LINKS with more enjoyable sites.

Have a wonderful day!
