Illustrator Dave Aikins grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, immersed in comic books, action figures and B-movies. In 1991, Dave was somehow persuaded to move to Ohio, studying at the Columbus College of Art & Design.
After graduating in 1995, he spent 4 years working for a large newspaper (remember those?) and a commercial art studio before realizing his dream of staying home in his basement all day. Now residing outside of Columbus Ohio with his wife, energetic son, and multiple cats and dogs, he is currently celebrating over 10 years running Let’s Draw Studio, the free-lance illustration company he founded in 1998.
He continues to produce work for clients in the areas of advertising, product design and publishing, and tries really hard not to draw Dora the Explorer as a zombie.
