Bio

David García Vivancos, DGV, is an illustrator specialized in caricature from Madrid, Spain.

He divides his working time between collaborations for Spanish newspapers and magazines (La Razón, ABC, tintaLibre, El Jueves...), live caricature for big companies (Vodafone, Toyota, Benetton or UEFA, in example) and education (workshops, talks and courses about the world of caricature). He has several published books, always using caricature as the main graphic element.

His work is the combination of a designy / abstract / geometric approach with digital textures to create direct drawings in which likeness is always the most important part. He uses only a few lines, a very limited colour palette and some textures to capture his "victims", following a very simple way of working and beginning with a simple sketch (traditional or digital), that comes to an end in Photoshop, giving a vector-like appearance which sharply contrasts with the sketch.

There is only one rule he tries not to forget: there is no caricature without likeness.
