Mr. Brown has been at Winthrop University since 2005. In 2008, he revised the illustration program that now includes 15 new illustration-specific courses in the Department of Design.

His extensive illustration work has appeared in “"The Body in Motion: Its Evolution and Design"” by Ted Dimon, published by North Atlantic Books in January of 2011. “"The Dynamic Voice: How It Works",” also extensively illustrated and written by the same author and publisher, followed shortly thereafter.

Most of David’s professional career was spent in Dallas, Texas. He was a medical-legal illustrator for 8 years prior to joining the Winthrop faculty and worked on 600-700 Medical Malpractice, Personal Injury and Product Liability cases for attorneys across the country. Before that he was owner and illustrator of Synapse Media Productions, Inc. for 13 years. He was a member of the craniofacial reconstruction team at the International Center for Craniofacial Surgery, providing artistic consultation on approximately 1300 craniofacial surgery patients. Prior to that, he was the film and animation producer of the medical and surgical films at Southwestern Medical School for four years.

He holds a Masters degree in Biomedical Communications with a Medical Illustration emphasis from U.T.H.S.C.D. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard in the Visual and Environmental Studies Department with an emphasis in Film Animation and the Psychology of Perception.

On a personal note, he is married to Sally Lenski-Brown (Albion College, B.A. 1971; Boston Univ., M.Ed. 1977) who is the supervisor of the Rutledge Visual Resource Center. They have twins, Meghan Brown Saavedra, currently a Presbyterian pastor in Ottawa, and Nicholas, who is a San Francisco architect.
