I admire Dave because he keeps challenging and encouraging people to use drawing as visual expression of their ideas. I also love his environmental photography — he has a great eye for unique imagery.

I can count on Dave Gray. His work is consistently sublime. Deeply fortifying, nutritious, and delicious--it's the only kind my mom lets me chew.

Dave has lots of great content, and plenty of interesting visuals. This isn't your father's flickr account. This is all kinds of thought provoking stuff.
