Born in Oregon, raised in Idaho, and educated in Utah, David Habben has enjoyed the adventure of living and learning in new environments. Traveling as far away as Melbourne, Australia as a missionary and spending time working with companies on both American coasts has given him a chance to see and appreciate some of the wonderful people and cultures of the world.
He is skilled in the use of traditional and digital media, creating illustrations for a wide variety of uses. His projects include editiorial and children’s book illustration, apparel design, storyboards, advertisment, logo design, and interactive design.
David’s personal works of art are symbolic in nature and often address issues that all individuals confront as we strive to apply eternal gospel principles and maintain the spirit in our mortal lives. Some of his recent works tell the stories of the restoration through visual expressions which engage the viewer through compelling symbols, compositions, and contemporary media.
This year he decided to start a neat little project with his sketchbook called “Shapes of Conscious.” He challenges his creativity by drawing a random shape and then filling it with a character. This unique idea allows the drawing to develop itself without being forced into a designated narrative. We this is very cool and decided to share it with you. Enjoy!
