About the Instructor
I'm David Patel, better known as DaveCaveDraws on instagram. I'm a freelance artist who lives in San Diego, California. I'm best known for the pretty ladies I draw all the time on Instagram. In my past life, I worked as a caricature artist at theme parks for close to 13 years. I worked at places like The San Diego Zoo, The Safari Park, and Legoland California where I would draw funny pictures of customers and their kids in the hot sun for hours everyday. I also had the unique opportunity of working and living in Seoul, South Korea as a caricature artist for a year. More recently I've been making a living working as a freelance comic book artist and animator. As far as education goes, I went to the famous Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Ca. There I learned how to draw and paint from artists such as Kent Williams, Sean Cheetham, and Will Weston. On top of that, I've been attending figure drawing workshops since 2002. Basically I have a crazy amount of figure drawing experience. I've also been posting pretty lady illustrations on instagram daily for about 2 years now, and every single one of those posts has thousands of likes. I can't wait to teach people how to do that.
Q: How did you first start doing what you do?
I guess I could say I've loved drawing ever since I was a kid, because thats what every single artist ever says and its not a real answer. I started taking drawing seriously when I was in high school when I drew a portrait of a girl I liked, and she liked it. And there was no instagram back then, I actually drew the picture, and then took it to school and gave it to her in person. Very awkward. But anyways, word spread, and people kept asking me to draw them things. It was a lot of fun, and I got a lot of attention out of it, so it was win win. Thinking back on that as an adult, that sounds quite idiotic. But when you're in high school, you're in a different world and being popular is everything. But I did fall in love with drawing at that point, I started taking 2D animation classes at my high school. My teacher of that class recommended that I start going to figure drawing workshops. My love for comics and animation grew, and I decided to go to art school after high school.
