David Petersen was born in 1977. His artistic career soon followed. A steady diet of cartoons, comics, and tree climbing fed his imagination and is what still inspires his work today.
He is the creator of the New York Times Bestselling Graphic Novel series Mouse Guard and is excited to be working on projects he dearly loves doing. Davids recent work also includes covers for IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and DC’s Gotham Academy. David is currently working on an illustrated edition of Kenneth Grahame’s Wind in the Willows, scheduled to be released at the end of 2016.
David was the 2007 Russ Manning Award recipient for Most Promising Newcomer. David has since gone on to win three Eisner Awards and two Harvey’s for his continued work on the Mouse Guard series.
David and his wife Julia reside in Michigan with their Anatolian Shepherds “Autumn and Bronwyn”.
