Description Edit | History

From website:

A. V. Morgan is my creative alias--originally as a writer, but thanks to dA, now also as an artist. Going professional (an ongoing process, still at a relatively formative stage) makes it necessary for me to associate my art with my conventional identity. As important as it has been for me to have a place where I could simply be myself, I need to be able to share what I create with others--even the things that make others uncomfortable. Out there in the world, I have to be David because that's all you can really touch or see. In here, you get a glimpse of my soul; a peek at who I really am. I'm not what I appear to be, and that's tough for most people to deal with. If it makes it easier to understand, or at least tolerate, think of it like this: There's more to me than meets the eye.

That's why I express myself in art. So, please allow me to (re)introduce myself:

Hi, I'm David Bryan Roberson, an artist and author specializing in illustration, custom content creation and web/ui design. I started out as an AP Art, English and Drama student. At the age of 15, I attended the Academy of Art in San Francisco on a 3/4 Summer Scholarship. I graduated from Foothill High School in Pleasanton, CA in 1988 with a 3.3 GPA.

I went to HSU to study art and drama in a place full of natural beauty. I was eager to learn new things, and devote myself to creative work. I was prepared to spend some time dealing with the general requirements, and of course, to find work to support myself--but withdrew from Humboldt State University in 1990, unable to find an acceptable balance between work and school.

When the job situation became desperate, I decided to take a leave of absence from school to deal with it. I planned to go back to HSU once I was confident I could support myself, but as I struggled to balance schedules, transportation, income and bills I realized the true cost. I wasn't doing anything as an artist or writer. I knew that supporting myself was an absolute necessity, so I chose to quit school and found a job that allowed me to devote as much of myself as possible to creative work.

I worked independently on my art and writing over the next 15 years, exploring different job options in retail, customer service, security, administration, publishing, communications and technical services. In 2005, I resumed my education, graduating from Axia College (2008) and the University of Phoenix (2010) with an over-all 3.9 GPA, an AA in Business (Axia), and a BS in Visual Communications (UoP).

In spite of frequent employment outside my areas of interest, my employers and co-workers typically noticed and took advantage of my creative skills, providing me with opportunities to use them in my job. Friends would come--or even send other people--to me for creative work. Eventually, I was offered the title, responsibility and duties of Graphic Designer as an addition to the other roles I had assumed in the wake of my Internship at GLP Aerie.

GLP co-founder Launce Haught, has recruited me for other positions as both an IT contractor and Graphic Designer, up to and including my current role as Lead Graphics/Web/UI Designer at I.T Mercenaries. I play a key role in projects with a UI component, but such projects are a small part of the I.T. Mercenaries service scope; so, I decided it was time to start freelancing. I had more than 20 years of experience in illustration, graphic design, game design and writing by the time I started contracting through Elance in 2010.

I'm am currently busy seeking out full time employment as an artist and a place of my own to live.
