About


Hello! I'm David Wentworth, an artist currently living in Los Angeles, from the wooded suburbs of Massachusetts. I make concept art, visual development, comics, and have worked on a wide range of projects from startup games and comics to pet illustration, indie film concept art to promotional art for Dreamworks, Amazon, and Sony projects.

This Kickstarter is a preorder campaign, to help me order an appropriate number of this book, and to offset the initial costs of printing.

  • The book will be 100 pages, full colour, and stuffed to the gills! printed as a softcover book using plant-based inks right here in the United States

The layout artist for this book is Abdullah Kassem

The title designer for the book is Dave Lentz

  • "Into the Wild" is my first art book ever, and is a collection of my artwork since I myself entered 'the wild', the projects and adventures since finishing my MFA that brought me to where I am today!
  • Within this book you will see new works, personal pieces, client projects, tutorials + process, sketches, and more!

The book is made of 4 major sections:

  •  Fauna: where I express my deep love for animals, wildlife, and nature both modern and prehistoric.
  •  Chimera: A realm of fantasy, full of mythology both classic and original
  •  Futura: To space and beyond, where I showcase my love for science fiction and world-building
  •  Saga: I love storytelling, and this section shares my work in comics, concept art and fanart exploration

 Print Samples

Risks and challenges

The Book is designed and ready to be printed, and our printers are ready to go! This kickstarter is to gauge how many I should order and offset printing costs, so risks are low. The only hurdle I'll have to overcome is mailing in a timely fashion, which is nothing a group of friends can't help with (I'll order some takeout!~ haha)
