DAVE DAVENPORT

comic creator / illustrator / tattoo artist

Dave Davenport has worked in the comic and tattoo industries for over 20 years. His works have appeared in various publications including Unzipped, Out, and Instigator magazines, Alphabet from Prism Comics, as well as Theater of Terror: Revenge of the Queers and Jon Macy's Fearful Hunter from Northwest Press. He has also created promotional posters for Street Fight Radio and was one of the original founders of Bent-Con, the first major geek and pop-culture convention celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community.

Along with Justin Hall, Dave co-created the gay erotic comics series Hard to Swallow, which was published through his own Marginalized Publications, the sibling to his Marginalized Tattoo shop in Los Angeles, CA. Spinning out of the pages of Hard to Swallow, Dave's original characters Feral and the Ghost Skater have become fan favorites, starring in their own books and earning Dave the Prism Comics Queer Press Grant in 2015. Now Dave continues creating new Feral and the Ghost Skater stories, as well as developing other original stories and projects, through Tannis Comix.
