Feast or Famine is Launching a Kickstarter Campaign

For those of you who haven't heard the news yet, the original series Feast or Famine by Dave Swartz Art is going to be published by Alterna Comics next year! This is very exciting news and means there is a lot that needs to be done to create this limited 3 issue series...

Help Fund Kickstarter - Feast or Famine Sci-Fi Comic

So this Saturday, October 7th, the Feast or Famine creative team will be launching a Kickstarter Campaign to help raise funds to produce the all-new sci-fi series!

The goal of the campaign is to raise funds to compensate the creative team including the incredibly talented & published artist Joseph Cooper, and the unique lettering stylings of Mr. Micah Myers. As the writer and colorist on the series, I will NOT be taking a percentage as my contribution to bringing this ALL-NEW Sci-Fi series to life!

Once the campaign goes live, we will be updating everyone each and everyday about it's progress. To make sure you stay connected to the campaign, be sure to subscribe to the Feast or Famine blog and follow our Social Media pages at -

An American artist originally from Detroit, MI. Joseph has worked for almost every major American comic book publisher, most notably Marvel, DC, Valiant, Dynamite, and Image. The titles he's contributed to include Magnus: Robot Fighter, Flash Gordon Holiday 2014, Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: Ghoul Goblin, X-O Manowar, Quantum and Woody, Bloodshot and the H.A.R.D. Corps, Baby's First Deadpool Book, Ka-Zar, and The Flash.

His bold style is a perfect pairing for the retro futuristic vision of the Feast or Famine series.


One of the most prolific letters I've ever had the pleasure of working with, Micah Myers has lettered stories and books for Dark Horse, Devil’s Due, Zenescope, Scout, 215 Ink, and a bunch of other publishers. He is the letterer of Mercy Sparx for Devil’s Due and Elasticatorand Welcome to Paradise for Scout. Micah has also worked on comics with Mark Bertolini, CW Cooke, Shane Berryhill, Hoyt Silva, Eric Esquivel, Jason Copland, Michael May, Josh Blaylock, and many more. He's always looking to work with more comic creators, so feel free to e-mail him at micahmyers84@gmail.com. You won't be disappointed!

Welcome to DaveSwartzArt.com!

A long time ago when I was in my final year of college I was tasked with creating my first website as part of my final project. It was a rudimentary creation, but it satisfied the approaching need to market myself to the commercial art world! For a fear years I updated it and it worked well for me until I made a move toward a cushy graphic design job and my need for it faded away.

Now, years later I find myself reviving my old site, doing a little cleaning, and moving around. New coat of paint, hang up the new work and I'm open for business once again! Back at freelance illustration while developing my own original comic book series, Atlas. It has been a big transition, but a necessary one to discover more about myself as an artist and as a person.

I welcome you all to the all-new DaveSwartzArt.com! Browse my portfolio of work of character poster and sequential art. If you like my style and are interested in a commission, just visit my about page and fill out a short form. I'm also working on other projects if you are in need of a little collaboration.
