Twenty-seven year old David Trumble is an award winning artist, cartoonist and illustrator, working in a diverse range of storytelling mediums. Critically acclaimed as a political cartoonist for the Sun Newspaper in the United Kingdom with a readership of eight million, Trumble now draws and writes for himself as a blogger on Huffington Post.
At the age of 16, Trumble won the Dan Hemingway Prize for Creativity for his 265 page graphic novel, Climate: A Cinematic Novel in Three Parts, which was subsequently published by the Blake Project. In 2012, Trumble's work moved to the top of Amazon's Movers and Shakers list for his dynamic illustrations in the Simon & Schuster publication, a Random Book about the Power of ANYone by Talia Leman. No one can attest to Trumble's rising star better than the Simon & Schuster Random Kid Team: "Trumble delivered a body of art for the Random Book that wowed everyone from literary agency, to publisher, to the public. He is a mega-watt talent, a genius, a consummate professional… Move over Gary Larson."
Trumble has designed and created book covers and jackets for companies like iSB Global Publishing, Simon & Schuster and ebooks; he has also provided artwork for websites, logos, comics, feature storyboards, branded products, portraits and other commissioned art, including the poster for The Superhero Project, benefiting Worldwide Orphans (WWO).
