David Moses is a cartoonist, public artist, and designer that lives with his family near Raleigh. He runs Past-Itch Comics and, in homage to Jack Kirby’s bombastic cosmic style, produces titles such as GALACTIC JUNK SQUAD (Well, More Like Family) and Final Frontiersman. He has contributed work to a wide range of publications, including Vacuum Decay, Strangers Zine, BOS Zine, Park End Books, and others. David has also provided artwork for several local municipal projects. He tries to do as much as possible by hand using traditional tools.
David Moses employs a unique style that he calls "Stark Pop," which relies on bombastic, high contrast elements to capture and hold attention. Visually, he pulls influence from artists such as Jack Kirby, Roy Lichtenstein, and Joshua Vides. Conceptually, he follows the path of Kehinde Wiley, who often uses everyday folks he meets on the street as models and places them in grandiose, elevated portrait environments. Similarly, David Moses uses out-of-this world spacescapes as a backdrop for the subject with the intent to highlight the extraordinary within the ordinary.
