David Paul Seymour is a Minneapolis-based freelance artist and illustrator, mostly doing record cover, t-shirt and poster artwork for rock and roll bands. David has done work for some of the biggest names in independent label Rock and Metal; notably Agnostic Front, The Sword, Red Fang, Graveyard, Earthless, Kadavar, Church of Misery, Lord Dying and Ides of Gemini. David has also been commissioned by numerous noteworthy companies for apparel design, craft beer packaging, event posters and skateboards.
Growing up in the ’80s in the DIY punk and metal scenes, David made lots of friends drawing cheaply xeroxed handbill flyers for bands and venues in his hometown of Biloxi, MS. After spending most of his adult life working in the field of architecture, David has finally returned to freelance illustrating; coupling his lifelong passion for music and drawing into a successful business he dubs “The Art of Rock & Roll”. In just 15 short months, David has gone from unknown to one of the best artists in the genres he loves. Posters and art prints of his work continuously sell out and his client list reads like a who’s-who of Stoner Rock and Doom heavyweights.
David’s approach is old school; highly detailed, hand-drawn pen-and-ink originals converted into fully usable works of art at home in a digital world.
