The Art of David Dotson
 David Dotson  Freelance Illustrator, Sculptor, and Wanderer.
    My earliest and fondest memories are of drawing. When I was young, I devoured the fantasy artwork of Frank Frazetta, Keith Parkinson, and Larry Elmore, right along with classic artists like Bouguereau,  Picasso, and Donatello.  My brother and I grew up on Myths and Sci-Fi tales and those stories have resonated with me throughout my life. 
     After serving in the Army I went on to get my BFA from Miami University and several years later also received my MFA.  Professionally my artwork has been shown both nationally and internationally, with my works in both public and private collections.  I  have helped create animal exhibits for the Cincinnati Zoo, worked as an sculptor in a custom steel works shop, and spent 10 years as an assistant preparator at an art museum. 
I love the experiences of life, and In my wanderings I have been fortunate enough to walk on the Great Wall of China, travel by horseback with nomads through the mountains of Mongolia, and to develop friendships with many great artists and thinkers throughout the world.
