Welcome to my website. I spend most of my life drawing, or painting, or writing, or teaching other people to paint and draw. I have a particular obsession with boats and the sea, so you’ll see my work in books and sailing magazines, as well as on the walls of my studio in Suffolk. Home is an elderly tug boat up a creek and I blog occasionally about life afloat, sailing, drawing and anything else.
If you read Practical Boat Owner magazine, you’ll find my cartoon every month illustrating the ever so slightly bonkers Mad about the Boat column (http://www.pbo.co.uk/dave-selby).
A selection of my cartoon are available on mugs, along with other nautical designs via www.gone-sailing.co.uk and all made here in my Suffolk studio at Waldringfield Boatyard – call in for a visit. I’m here most days but if you’re coming especially give a ring first (01473 736260).
