Devon Purkiss

Devon Purkiss

Devon Purkiss (a.k.a D3) is a NYC-based artist. His interest in art began early on during childhood, thanks in part to the action-packed, whimsical cartoons of the 1980s.

Eventually, D3 was introduced to comic books, Anime, classical art, and experimental modern art and decided that he desired a career in the arts.

D3 attended the School of Visual Arts, where he attained his B.F.A in illustration. He is currently a freelance illustrator, storyboard artist, humorist, optimist, and cartoonist working from his studio in the Bronx, always sketching his way to the top.
