Dave Campbell was raised in Ecorse, Michigan (Detroit area) and started drawing at an early age. Soon after, he gained an affinity for comics and further developed his drawing skills by using them as reference material. After High school he went to the University of Michigan's School of Art & Design where he earned a BFA degree in graphic design. In his adult life Dave has worked at design firms, managed in-house art departments, and even started a team uniform company which he operated for 5 years. Through all of this Dave never lost his love for the comic medium which led to co-creating The Calling with writing partner Jeff Williams. Dave currently resides with his wife and three children in California.
