David Malan has worked professionally as an artist and illustrator for over a decade working with national and international clients including The Walt Disney Company, Harper Collins, Penguin Books, Amazon, the United States Mint, The Weekly Standard and many others.
Born and raised in Utah, his influences have long included many classical artists of the 19th century and Golden Age illustrators. Regular drawing in a sketchbook began early as a basis for all further creative growth and continues to be a fundamental part of his training. David employs a frank accurate approach to portray the emotions of the subject, and uses straight forward portraiture with highly polished painting. The artwork is focused on depicting the individual and creating an untold story.
David lives with his artistic wife Natalie and their four! muse children in Salt Lake City, Utah.
