"My team and I feel so fortunate to work with David regularly on one of our biggest projects - it's been a truly rewarding partnership, and hard to imagine someone who brings more thought, skill, and creativity to their work. The graphics and illustration we do require a balance of structure and creative freedom that David has shown from the start, and he has always been a true pleasure to work and communicate with, someone we truly consider part of the team. I'd recommend him without hesitation and hope to continue our collaboration into the future!"

"I recently had the pleasure to work with David Henry Lantz on the publication of the digital magazine application Peephole 2.0. Throughout its production, David provided thoughtfully researched, beautifully designed and illustrated content, employing animation and interactivity where tastefully suitable.

The Road - Personal Work


The Road was directly inspired by Cormac McCarthy's 2007 novel of the same name. I immersed myself in the source material, studying stark post-apocalyptic visuals and literature. The Road is painted in watercolor, utilizing a graphic style to contrast with the grim subject matter of the the novel. This piece was the recipient of the Barbara Bradely Appreciator's Award at the 2015 AAU Spring Show, a Runner Up in the 2015 Creative Quarterly illustration competition and a finalist in the Society of Illustrators 2015 Student Competition in New York City.
