Creative writing and art courses tell you to “create what you know.” This is why David Reddick created the comic strip INTELLIGENT LIFE. David doesn’t just write and draw his comic strip – he lives it. He’s deeply immersed in all things geek/pop culture and his enthusiasm for such things is clearly evident when you meet him.
David’s career in comics has spanned nearly 20 years and has been varied and rewarding. For six years, David was the staff editorial cartoonist and newsroom artist for the The Herald Bulletin daily newspaper in Anderson, Indiana. For three years, David created the popular comic, THE TREK LIFE for CBS Studios and Paramount Pictures – the comic ran on the official STAR TREK website and various publications worldwide. David also created GENE’S JOURNAL and ROD & BARRY for Roddenberry.com, further solidifying his status with “Trekkers” everywhere.
David created the popular web comic, LEGEND OF BILL, which he brought to a height of two million page views per month. He has created comics for IDW Publishing, Tokyo Pop, ROK Media and CBS Mobile, among others. And his abstract paintings and original cartoons have been shown in galleries in North America and Europe.
By day, David works at Paws, Inc., where he is the Digital and Social Media Coordinator for the GARFIELD worldwide property. He has written and drawn for the GARFIELD comic strip and he has drawn various art used for GARFIELD licensing and animation. David’s acumen for social media boosted the GARFIELD Facebook page to more than 13 million fans in just three years.
The next and most rewarding chapter in David’s comics career lies ahead of him with his new comic strip, INTELLIGENT LIFE, syndicated worldwide by King Features Syndicate.
