Details

From his psychedelic cartoons to his critically acclaimed comic books and his vivid paintings, Dave Cooper is a unique artist who intrigues and fascinates. Here is his long-awaited monograph, encompassing illustrations, paintings, comics, toys, and animations. From his first published cartoons, created when he was a teenager, to his most recent oil paintings and exhibitions, this beautiful compilation delivers an intimate look into Cooper's life and work.

Dave began his career in the 90s, making underground comics for Seattle's Fantagraphics Books. His periodical Weasel won both the underground Ignatz Award and the mainstream Harvey Award in 2000. His psycho-erotic graphic novel Ripple sported an introduction by David Cronenberg.

At the turn of the century, Dave morphed into an oil painter, showing at galleries in Los Angeles and New York City. He also had a large retrospective of his comic book artwork in Angouleme and Paris in 2002. Monographs of his paintings included introductions by comedian David Cross and filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.

Around 2008 Dave turned his attention to the field of animation, ultimately getting two of his original kids tv shows greenlit--PIG GOAT BANANA CRICKET for Nickelodeon, and THE BAGEL AND BECKY SHOW for Teletoon/BBC. His short adult film, THE ABSENCE OF EDDY TABLE, was released in the fall of 2016 and has since won a number of awards internationally.

In the summer of 2017 Dave returned to oil painting, embarking on ambitious new works for his largest gallery show to date--70 paintings for Paris, 2020. Concurrently, he completed his largest single commission for a Madrid museum--a 13-foot wide nod to Bosch's The Garden of Earthly Delights.

Quite adult, lots of nudity and sexual situations.
