Dave Campbell’s daughter is a self-published author currently enrolled at the Iowa Writer’s Workshop. She approached her dad about developing a comic together. She writes and he draws. The result is Groovy U.
Raised in Ecorse, Michigan (Detroit area), Dave Campbell started drawing at an early age. Soon after, he gained an affinity for comics and further developed his drawing skills by using them as reference material.
After high school, Dave went to the University of Michigan’s School of Art & Design, where he earned a BFA degree in graphic design.
In his adult life, Dave has worked at design firms, managed in-house art departments, pursued a career in music, and even started a team uniform company which he operated for five years.
Through all of this, Dave never lost his love for comics, which led to co-creating The Calling with writing partner Jeff Williams.
He is currently working on issue #2 of Groovy U, a new series written by his daughter Shelby Campbell.
By day Dave works as an associate director of content management for a company that provides insight and analysis for various industries. He resides with his wife and three children in California’s bay area.
