David Saracino. was born in Buffalo, NY on December 26th, 1987. As a toddler, he was constantly seen with a drawing utensil in hand, as soon as he established the motor functions to do so. Drawing constantly in his notebooks in school, it was clear there were more creative things on his mind than typical schoolwork. This fierce love for art continued to be nurtured when he spent the 5th and 6th grade outside of Siena, Italy with his parents while they directed the SUNY Siena program. David incessantly captured the medieval architecture and classical sculpture into a plethora of sketchbooks, teaching him form and composition without opening a textbook.
After studying editorial illustration at Syracuse University, David moved to New York City where he’s been permanently freelancing for the past 5 years. In his time-off, he enjoys playing and writing music, cooking, eating, bothering Laney, and fending off the occasional cat-attack.
