David J. Vanderpool
Artist
United States
I am a professional artist interested in meeting other creative artists and models who can network together to offer each other ways to advance in their goals and careers. And if nothing else, at least have some fun getting to know one another.

Born and raised in San Jose, California, but currently live near Bakersfield California. where I tell people I have been kidnapped and help hostage :)

I learned at an early age that drawing was a great way to 'escape' the world around you. Later in my late teens I discovered it could bring in extra cash, too! Cool!

My style in drawing has changed through the years, as a result of always trying to improve from the last attempt. Much like life in general, if you don't learn from your mistakes you can't move on and do better.

As a published artist/author and having several book out on the market on how I draw, I am currently working on my fourth book, on drawing men. Which will be followed by my final book, drawing women.

If you think you have what it takes for me to draw you, feel free to email me a few photos. You never know.. you might have what i am looking for, for my next project?

My drawings have sold through the last several decades and can be found throughout much of The United States, England, The Netherlands, Australia, Russia, and others. Much as a result of my website but more so though word-of-mouth.

Personal Quote: I hate stupid people that are too stupid to know they are stupid
Interests
I have received two lettered delivered by the US Post office, from the city of Boston, in the last month by a stalker who is using images, and comments here on DeviantArt to feed on his fantasies and perverted desires towards me and my art, and others here. So be careful what you post and share here. 

The images are computer generated and printed on 5" x 3" photo paper, of sexual fantasies of muscle men and the artist/photographers that work with them. The stories are typed and feeds on the writers desired towards me as an artist and the models I may work with. Nothing threatening as of yet. However the letters have been turned over to the city police in my town, the U.S. Postal Inspector, and they say they will forward them and any future letters to the FBI since they used the US post Office to deliver them. Even though there is no return address, his time the person wrote on the back of the photos and the top corner of the envelope, so it's a start in finding this guy and putting him in jail where he belongs.

The scary part is that he went out of his way to find my home address. Which is not on any of sites or blogs. An indication the police say he needs to be stopped, before he goes to far.

So fair warning people. If you have been receiving offensive correspondences don't ignore it. Report it to the Postal Inspector and police. Deviant ART wont do anything about it. Or at least I have get to get someone to hear me out.

If the person who is behind these letters and photos, is reading this  - fair warning. I will hunt you down!!!!
