Although Todd Goldman began painting in high school, he didn’t pursue his artistic interests until years later. Instead, he earned a degree in accounting from the University of Florida and worked as a CPA for six years followed by a handful of odd jobs. Frustrated with the state of things, Goldman began to doodle just as he had when he was younger: “making fun of the world through his stupid doodles.” After six months, Goldman had collected enough designs to start david & goliath in 2000, a t-shirt company based on his doodles.
Currently, david & goliath makes all kinds of products with thousands of unique designs – “if it’s funny and stupid, they’ll make it.” Goldman himself continues to create his own art and doodles as well as several side projects, which included compiling a book of his art called “Boys Are Stupid, Throw Rocks at Them,” released in 2005. Since then, Goldman has released other books, like “Girls are Weirdos But They Smell Pretty” and the two children’s books “Animal Soup” and “The Zoo I Drew.” In 2007, Goldman began working with FOX on a show called “The Uglies” and with Ashton Kutcher on an animated series called “BLAHgirls.com.” After witnessing the resounding success of his pieces in galleries around the country, Goldman opened his own gallery, Pop-Factory, in 2008.
Goldman’s artwork is exhibited and collected all around the world. Collectors of his works include Jessica Simpson, Rihanna, John Goodman, and Sir Paul McCartney. Goldman usually has at least ten art shows in any given year, from Los Angeles to London to Japan.
