“David Habben is an awesome illustrator and a pleasure to work with. His talent and experience is an asset to my publication. Since the first time I have worked with David he has been professional and creative in all his work. David is always prompt and keeps within deadlines. David has a great working process from concept to final version. He takes our ideas and creates wonderful illustrations to compliment our articles. Often, his alternative ideas are a better option and we will use those instead.

About David Habben.
David “HABBENINK” Habben is an illustrator, artist, and educator based in Utah, USA. His unique work has been featured in children’s books, magazines, and even on snowboards. He’s received awards from 3x3 Creative Quarterly, Communication Arts, Graphis Magazine, and the AIGA, and David’s first author-illustrated children’s book, “Mr. Sherman’s Cloud” (Page Street Publishing), was named one of Bank Street College’s Best Children’s Books of the Year for 2020.
His imaginative style applies intricate line work to create distinctive characters and worlds. He also combines bold brushwork with dynamic shapes in striking story-filled imagery. David’s education includes a BFA in Illustration and MFA in Studio Art. He was also a Children’s Book Design Fellow at Chronicle Books. These combined influences inspire him to keep developing creatively and give a new voice to every project. When he’s not in the studio or classroom, David loves spending time with his family, especially outdoors, and traveling.
