David Fugere


David Fugere was born in Portland, Oregon in 1937. The book, “Against All Obstacles” was started at age 60, and finished at 75. The perceived need for cover-art started David on an ambitious study of art that has now created a new facet in his life; sadly, it stretched the competition of the book to 15 years. Many of the book’s adventure situations are based on real life experiences.
