“One of my favorite artists on the planet. Incerdible work, vision, style. An inspiration and then some.” -Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Co-Creator Kevin Eastman
“As I sifted through the years of his life and the breadth of his imagination, [David] guided me through the history of Mouse Guard. It was a process-junkie’s dream. There were sculptures and puppets, etchings and sketches, paper models and crayon drawings on the back of restaurant menus…As with all expertly built worlds, Mouse Guard did not lose its magic when explained; it only became more spellbinding. ” -Rebecca Taylor from her Editor’s Note
