Guy Davis

Guy Davis (born 1966) is an American illustrator who has worked on comic properties along with conceptual design for film, television and video game projects. He is best known for his collaborations with director Guillermo del Toro, including the films Pacific Rim and Crimson Peak. He is the writer and artist of his creator-owned series, The Marquis.


A self-taught illustrator, Guy Davis began his art career in 1985. Soon his independent work attracted the editors of Caliber Press, who published his first creator-owned series — the Harvey Award-nominated Baker Street. It was the success of Baker Street that got Davis work with DC Comics/Vertigo, illustrating Sandman Mystery Theatre. He illustrated Mike Mignola’s ongoing B.P.R.D. series, The Zombies That Ate the World for Métal Hurlant, and his creator-owned series The Marquis for Dark Horse Comics. He has also provided illustration work for the White Wolf role-playing game series and TCM Underground, cover artwork for Criterion, and poster art for Mondo.

At the 2011 ECCC, Davis announced he would no longer be the ongoing B.P.R.D. artist. Since leaving comics, Davis has moved to a career in conceptual design, providing concept art, character design and storyboards for film, television and video games. He worked on Pacific Rim, designing the Kaiju Otachi and Slattern, various props and storyboards. Other conceptual design projects for director Guillermo del Toro include Crimson Peak, The Strain TV series and The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror XXIV opening. He has also provided concept for Steven Universe, ParaNorman, The Mill at Calder's End, Pinocchio, and video game projects including Evolve and InSane.

Davis currently resides in Michigan, with his partner, writer and artist Rosemary Van Deuren.
