About Dave Otto

Bee Viewing Bio Pic

I am a freelance artist currently based in Moline, IL. My paintings are narrative, often surreal and expressive illustrations, many of which feature animals engaged in activities that comment subjectively about human issues. Professional work includes both private and corporate commissions.

I earned my BFA in Illustration from California College of the Arts in 2002, and was awarded the honor of High Distinction. Originally from Moline, IL, I have lived and worked in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, New York City, Chicago, and Osaka, Japan.
