More About the Author

I was born outside of Buffalo New York, graduated high school in 1961 in Stillwater, Minnesota, and was graduated with a BFA in Printmaking from the University of Minnesota in 1971. I worked as a lyricist and drummer from 1967, an illustrator from 1971, a graphic designer from 1979, an art director from 1983, a digital printing instructor from 1991, a font designer from 1994, an author from 1995, and a self-publisher since 1997. My writing career began with several traditionally published textbooks on digital publishing, graphic design, and typography from 1995-2004 focusing on FreeHand, Photoshop, and InDesign. My current best sellers in digital publishing are "Practical Font Design, Third Edition", closely followed by "Writing In InDesign Expanded Edition 2.5", and "InDesign Ebook Conversions".

However, my Christian writings have become more popular. My current best seller there is "How to Teach the Bible". I've been a Christian and scripture teacher since 1974, a teaching pastor in a small Foursquare then non-denomination church in Albuquerque throughout the 90s 'til 2005. I've written several verse by verse Bible studies, topical studies, and a couple Christian political thrillers.

I also consult with and design books for other Christian authors. This has become a real focus of my ministry. It's been a real joy to be working on my own. I can finally express my convictions, responsible only to you, my readers, and my God.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Denise T. Daniels on October 23, 1999
Format: Paperback
Digital Drawing: Print & Web Graphics Using FreeHand written by David Bergsland, instructor at Albuquerque Technical Vocational Institute surpasses any book written on the subject. Not only is it a tutorial for FreeHand - the "hows" are explained in detail, but David goes beyond the "hows" and explains the "whys." Often designers create a design without having the knowledge that is necessary once their drawing goes to print. Many complications and added expense can occur because one is oblivious to what is necessary for the desired result. David accurately covers all aspects from the beginning of the process through to the end. Skill exams and miniskills throughout the chapters are excellent exercises for honing ones skills and are just another feature to help one become a competent artist. This book is comprehensive and a must for anyone at any level pursuing a career in digital illustration. David's expertise is brilliantly shared with all who read this masterwork; the wealth of information contained in these pages is priceless. Five stars is an understatement. Denise T. Daniels

Format: Paperback
David Bergsland, Business Graphics and Communications Instructor at Albuquerque Technical Vocational Institute, clearly defines what medium Freehand 8.0 has a capable tool for Printing and Web Design. This text is bookmark in the industry where none is more clearly stated and shown with the use of the MacIntosh. David gives you the good points and limitations of the software by explaining how things work within the printing "realworld."
It is very well written and shows much experience within the book. This is a must for anyone who is interested in web-design, desktop publishing, printing. The price outweighs the amount of information that we all can learn from. Six Stars!

Format: Paperback
Digital Drawing has to be one of the best FreeHand books that I have ever read. The author seems to focus on "Real-World" techniques that a designer needs to know in order to incorporate FreeHand into her workflow. Digital Drawing, rather than a tutorial based book that shows you the software, focuses on the functionality of its use and the advantages for efficient productivity. Fortuneately, I have had the oportunity study under David Bergsland which only accentuates the learning experience. I can hardly wait until the next book reaches the stands.
