About the Artist:
David Gorden is a creator, writer, and sequential artist who specializes in the creation of intellectual properties. Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, he fell in love with art, particularly visual storytelling, at a young age. He began making his own comic strips and submitting them to the Post-Dispatch, at the age of 8. The Post very graciously turned David down; with the editor at the time sending him a rejection letter that encouraged him to continue to pursue his dream of becoming a cartoonist. David went on to become a professional graphic artist and cartoonist and was a founding member of legendary St. Louis art crews Air Assault and later Mach One.
David is the creator of Kwame Hightower and Quantum University. He released his first independent OGN, Kwame Hightower and the Man with No Name in late March of 2018. The story introduces the rambunctious 12-year-old Kwame Hightower who becomes the king of England after he draws Excalibur from the sacred stone and the ensuing adventure! David has recently begun work on his next graphic novel Kwame Hightower and the Exiles of Kalatheaa and is actively promoting his books through touring, posts on social media, speaking engagements and teaching workshops on visual storytelling.
