David Angelo Roman will be joining Patric at Comic Con Africa. A classically trained artist, studied in Spain and Italy and began his professional career as a mural and fresco artist, with emphasis on photo-realism and illusions.  Always being a fan of comics, it was only a matter of time before he applied all his skills towards comic art.

Roman was first published with the comic book Xtreme Champion Tournament, and also created a leather variant cover for Aftershock’s hot title Babyteeth which was unveiled at San Diego Comic Con 2017. Currently Roman is a Rick and Morty cover artist, creating art for the Oni – Adult Swim – Rick and Morty comic book and the Cryptozoic trading cards.  Roman is also an artist for Star Wars, Walking Dead, Marvel under Topps, and Upperdeck.  Most recently, David has been contracted with Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe Cryptozoic Trading Cards.
