Dave Petzold

Dave Petzold is an author and illustrator from Lennox Head, Australia. His illustrations, often playful and goofy, embrace the little things that go unnoticed – the things we take for granted. He uses graphite pencil, ink, oil paint and digital collage in his art. His first picture book, Seven Seas of Fleas, published by Starfish Bay Publishing, was shortlisted for the 2021 CBCA New Illustrator Award.
