Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
David Ayala began drawing on walls at an early age. Eventually he ran out of crayons and so he attended the world's only school for comics and cartooning: the Kubert School in Dover, New Jersey. Dave has since worked as a graphic artist for over 20 years. He is proficient in illustration, caricature, cartooning, comic book art, and graphics software such as Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. Dave designed an overwhelming majority of the gaming tokens manufactured during the 1990s. Dave's professional background also includes designing interior and exterior signs for the Las Vegas casino market, he was the editorial cartoonist for the Ottumwa Courier, and he's since branched off into book illustrations, t-shirt design, privately commissioned work. Dave is currently hard at work on a series of mermaid illustrations for a Mermaid Art book; a graphic novel titled "Clockgirl and the League of Useless Superheroes";"Pineapple Street" , a traditional newspaper comic strip; and a series of novellas titled "Ann Zanity". and he recently penned "Diving Back into the Dating Pool" available on Amazon. All of these projects to be released through Lucky Thirteen Presents, a start-up indie small press collective. www.luckythirteenpresents.com

David also has a bachelors degree in General Psychology. A few years back he released a solo CD through Fossil Records (which closed its doors about a year later). He plays a mean saxophone, as well as electric bass, electric guitars, synthesizers, and isn't a half bad drummer. He sings too, but the cat on the fence next door asked him to stop. Crazy cat. Dave feels a bit odd talking about himself in the third person but that doesn't stop him from wanting to eat your brains. Yum.

Interests
As some of you may recall,  I self-published my first book a few months back even after having mostly finished it well over a year ago. I sat on it. This was personal--it was me in those pages. And it was primarily embarrassing stories about my own life. It took a year to decide if I wanted this book out there for the world to read? But with fresh eyes, I reread my words and realized, "Yes, this is an entertaining to anyone who has tried to find love." So I published "Diving Back into the Dating Pool" and it is now available on Amazon and Kindle. BUY ME, PLEASE? The stories within contain my hilarious misadventures during a period of my life no longer than 4 to 5 years. Here's the blurb that explains it all. And please stick with me, things get good.

"These are the true confessions of a forty year old man diving back into the dating pool. However, Cupid does things differently these days. No longer does a man spot his mate, club her over the head, and drag her by the hair back to the cave. These are sophisticated times and meeting new people occurs primarily on the web, even if most are loathe to admit it. Over the course of two years, the author meets with a variety of women: the Country Girl, the Princess, the Psychiatrist, the Preacher’s Ex-Wife, the Farmer’s Daughter, Phone Girl, the Crazy Cat Lady, that strange Goth Girl, the Sapiophile and many more. Will any of them capture his heart?"

As it turns out, yes. One of them did capture my heart, and really always had it. The one I truly wanted the most, but I never believed she would feel the same towards me.  I kept trying anyway--awkwardly. Now I am head over heels for her, and we have been dating for a month now.  This time that spark ignited. This is what people write those love sings about. Yes, there was fireworks and rainbows and scampering bunnies celebrating out in the fields. But stop and think for just one moment. At some point, I had to confess, "Um, I wrote this book about my dating experiences, and... um, you're in it."

Let that sink in.
