Strangely Drawn To It by Dave Quiggle
Dave Quiggle is a designer and illustrator whose work offers both creative whimsy and intellectual depth in equal measure. It has been utilized on posters, packaging and merchandise for Joey Ramone, Michael Jackson, Sick of It All and Johnny Cupcakes. The Erie, Pennsylvania native’s work has also been featured in gallery shows focused on Pee-Wee Herman (who loved Quiggle’s contributions enough to tweet about them), Arrested Development, and Fringe. Quiggle – who is best known in the music realm and underground subculture -- credits his style to a small-town upbringing filled with monster magazines, comic books and cartoons. He has said that he believes his work strikes a chord of electric connectivity for likeminded folks seeking an escape from realism through the language of vintage animation, Americana and otherworldly illustration. He lives in Murrieta, California.
