Dave "Rock" Cowles
Cogito Ergo Periculosus - I Think, Therefore, I am Dangerous

Rock Cowles 01/15/16
 I'm Rock Cowles, a graphic artist, specializing in 3D caricatures, Flash animation, web site design, custom logos, and t-shirt and business card design.

Friend me on facebook

I first began designing web sites in 1993. After designing several for my own business, I began to have other businesses approach me and ask to do sites for them. I've specialized in web sites for tattoo and piercing shops, dog breeders, and small churches, but have also created web sites for corporations, two bookstores, a day care, a BBQ Sauce & Rub company, a boarding kennel, political organizations, an interior design company, a business card company, a cellphone store, an investment company, a tattoo supply company, a Bluegrass organization, a quilter, a bicycle shop, two custom whip makers, clothing lines, clubs, and others.

I do a tremendous amount of graphic design work, including logos, maker's marks, humorous illustration, tattoo design, simple animation,
T-shirt & business card design, product labels, banners, decals, and more!

My caricatures have been seen in books and newspapers, on television, billboards, magazines, business cards, ads, flyers, and t-shirts. I have yet to break into radio!

3D Rock South Park Caricature

I do my best to create a fun likeness while trying to find a balance between mercy, humor, and accuracy.

I firmly believe a good caricature looks more like you than you do!

Talk Like A Pirate Day

I do not, at present, do live caricatures, parties, or events. I have chosen instead to focus on doing studio caricatures in the relative safety of my studio in
upstate, South Carolina.

My wonderful daughter,Raeny, is my greatest teacher.
