DavidAyala's Profile Picture
artist formerly known as Fritz
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.

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.

Personal Quote: "Really, Speck, it looks like a rainbow thew up in here!" - Ann Zanity
Yes folks, here it is. Another zany installment in the ridiculous life of Dave. For those who haven't been following along, previously I kissed a girl and I liked it. So of course she dumped for no sane reason. Honestly, in retrospect, I'm good with that. The level of selfishness she displayed was beyond any capacity I've ever witnessed. I mean who breaks up with someone and then three days laters asks, ".. but would you still be interested in working on my book cover?" She was talented, and a cutey though. She was always, "Me, me, me, me." But to listen to her talk, she's the most selfless person that ever existed. Ugh, women.

Anyways, so I manage to go about duct-taping my fragile heart. And it's fragile, believe me, just check out my hilarious book "Diving Back Into the Dating Pool" now available on Amazon and Kindle, and you can get a more detailed account of the insanity I've endured over the last two years. Regardless, when I fall off the horse I get right back on. I'm cool like that, and I recommend you do the same. FOr better or worse, go out and live that life. So I found a nice enough lady to take out on a date or two. She seems to be a vast improvement over the previous mental-health case. So yay me, right? Well, not exactly. On the way back I'm zipping along the highway--obeying all traffic laws I might add--when not one but two deers decided to slam their bodies into my lovely Green VANtern. So my minivan is pretty thrashed, I'm okay at least, so there's that. I can't speak for the deers but parts of them are still on my van.  There's dents. Windshield is shattered. No side-view mirror. No front headlight, blah, blah, yadda yadda, etc. If I had to guess, the insure will probably declare my claim as a total loss (for those following along with my silly life for a while now know previously I almost died spinning off of a 15-20 foot high icey road into some farmer's field and that was a total loss as well.) So I might get a check. IT won't be enough.  The van doesn't bluebook for nearly what it is worth to me as a dependably running vehicle. Better the devil you know, as the saying goes. So anything I purchase at that price isn't bound to run as well. So whoop dee dee!

If that wasn't enough excitement, the following day my daughter informed me she's "expecting". I'd be more excited if she and my grandson weren't already living with me. And her and the boyfriend are kind of fighting. Or broke up. Or something. So this will make grandchild number four for me. Almost have a basketball team...

Luckily six inches of snow fell.

Yeesh, what next?

Stay tuned, it'll only get more interesting.
