David Grove developed an interesting variation of the Coles Phillips “fadeaway” technique by melding background and foreground colors and values. This demands much preliminary planning for the final result to look so spontaneous.

Grove was born in Washington, D.C. and attended the Syracuse University School of Art. In 1964, he took a year off to travel in Europe but stayedon in Paris for several years as freelancer. Following another stint in London with Artist Partners Ltd., he returned to the States—to San Francisco—and the west coast has been his home base since. There he works for a wide range of clients, such as Car and Driver, The Saturday Review, Bantam Books, Ballantine Books, Dell Publishing Company, Standard Oil, the U.S. Navy, the Atlantic Richfield Co., Western Airlines, NFL Properties, Inc., Pendleton Woolen Mills, CBS, the Bank of America and Walt Disney Productions. Grove has also taught at the Academy of Arts College in San Francisco and is a member of both the San Francisco and New York Society of Illustrators and the Graphic Artists Guild.
