CCAD Alumni Talks: David Hovey

 CCAD alum David Hovey (Illustration, 2009) discusses his creative work and his career. David, who worked in traditional media as a CCAD student, pivoted to digital painting after graduation, but continues to bring traditional sensibilities to his practice today. Currently a Media Designer at McGraw-Hill Education, David has worked for such companies as Victoria's Secret, Abbott, Fantasy Flight Games, Catalyst Games, and the Ohio Lottery. His favorite projects include Arkham Horror, Star Wars, and especially his illustrations for a textbook version of Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer, for which he received the Columbus Society of Communicating Arts Best Illustration award in 2020.
