Hello my name is Dave The Chimp

How would you describe your style?
Telling stories with as few lines as possible.

Who or what inspires you?
Life. Things people say. And trying to find the humour in any situation.

How long have you been active as an artist?
I've been paying my bills by drawing for thirty years, and drawing for free in the streets for more than twenty years.

Have you arrived stylistically or does the style and your goals keep changing?
I've drawn in many, many styles, tried a lot of things. Around five years ago I decided to stop trying to be so clever, stop trying to always come up with new ideas. People liked my "Human Bean" characters, and I enjoyed drawing them, so I chose to focus on this work and see where it goes.
