Monsieur Cabinet is an illustrator, designer and educator

currently living in York. Since graduating from Kingston

University with a degree in Illustration and Animation,

he has worked on a broad range of projects for an

international client base that includes the New York Times

Magazine, DKNY and The Huffington Post.


Precise line drawing is the basis of Monsieur Cabinet’s work.

He considers himself an advocate of subtlety and simplicity,

and he often distils concepts into minimal forms.

Though concise, his images are rich in content, incorporating

humour or observing the beauty in the more mundane

aspects of everyday life.

When Dave is not illustrating in his studio, he teaches

Graphic Design.

He is also a visiting lecturer at Kingston University, London
