Dave Valeza

A Savannah, Georgia local, Dave Valeza graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a masters in Sequential Art. He worked as a visual development and layouts artist on the touching graphic novel An Elegy for Amelia Johnson, written by Andrew Rostan and illustrated by Kate Kasenow. Valeza has also contributed to comics Love Machines and Anything That Loves Anthology.

I was first attracted to his work via his Tumblr, where he posts up daily observational drawings. Usually sat in a coffee shop, Valeza produces quick brush pen sketches of people, capturing their personality and style with limited strokes. Then in turn includes his observations into his comics, adding the small details that bring his characters to life.

You can find more of Dave Valeza’s work on his website.
