My Bio

For over 20 years artist Dave Nestler has enjoyed success as one of the most recognized names in Contemporary Pinup Art. Dave’s work has appeared in 5 published art books and graced countless magazines here and abroad. A regular on the convention circuit, He has appeared at over 300 conventions in North America and Canada.

10 years ago Dave was invited to contribute to George Lucas’ personal art book project: “Star Wars: Visions”. His inclusion caught the eye of Acme Archives Direct, one of the largest producers of officially licensed original art and fine art reproductions for the entertainment industry. Dave soon began producing art for franchises such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Kung Fu Panda, plus The Big Lebowski, and music brands: Iron Maiden and The Beach Boys.

In 2016 Acme turned to Dave to begin producing original character art for their Disney gallery partners in Asia.

Since then, Dave has traveled twice to Japan to do appearances, print signings, and live painting demonstrations in Tokyo, Osaka and 6 other major cities. In a short 3 year period, he has built up a big following among the Disney art crowd, and has produced, and sold over 130 pieces of original art.

I haven't decided whether to sell product here on Deviant Art. I currently have a pretty big Etsy store that is doing quite well. Almost 100 products including 11 x 17" color and black and white prints, original art and licensed Framed Disney canvas giclee's. A little something for everyone. You can see what's available by clicking on the link below. https://www.etsy.com/shop/davenestlerfineart?ref=l2-about-shopname

Got a brand new website to go along with the rebirth of my Deviant art page.


Your sketches are awesome! Greetings from Argentina!
Excellent work Dave, I've been a fan for years, going back to early Air Brush Action stuff. You were influential for my own work before I started in computer graphics and did airbrush work. I had all my airbrushes stolen at one time and that pretty much stopped me working in the airbrush medium lol. I still look at your techniques for light and color however, it translates well for any artform.....BRAVO!
