Dave Cooper, born in Eastern Canada, is a cartoonist, commercial illustrator and a graphic designer who currently lives in Ottawa, Canada. At the age of 18 he began his professional career, making what were then called “alternative comics”. Gradually Cooper made a name for himself and honed his craft. In about 10 years, his comics had gained a solid cult following, and praise from such luminaries as Robert Crumb, Art Spiegelman, and film director David Cronenberg. In fact, Cronenberg penned an introduction to Dave’s last substantial work, the graphic novel Ripple. In recent years Dave has won a slew of awards, been translated into French and Spanish, and has exhibited his comic book artwork all over North America and Europe.
