David Kaye was born in Bradford, England in 1986, The time when cartoons were at their best and going to play out in the morning and not coming home till the street lamps came on was the norm. From an early age he was drawing the cartoons and putting his own little twist onto the things they were doing. Fast forward 10 years and he is in the middle of Afghan with the British army, David found time to burn in between patrols so started drawing again. David practiced drawing objects that were in magazines that had been sent out to him and mixed it with a cartoon aspect of the things he used to draw when he was a child.
When he left the forces, David found himself slightly lost and was told to turn to his creative side to help me. He started painting and this opened a new feeling of achievement and ambition. The figure that is in all the pieces is a childlike figure wearing a helmet with big glossy spheres attached and is usually accompanied by an animal or object that has a realistic aspect to it. Each piece seems to have its own personality and is executed with a realistic touch. David’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and has also had a printed publication with the ampersandpro and also had numerous successful print releases.

Popcorn and cascade bidding:
If a bid is placed during the last 2 minutes of the auction, the closing time will be automatically extended for an additional 2 minutes from the time the last bid was placed. The item will close once all bidding activity has stopped. This is recommended for high-value and popular items. Popcorn bidding prevents bidders from waiting until the last minute to bid without giving the bidders who were outbid an opportunity to rebid.
Cascade bidding ensures auction lots close at staggering times, one after another. For example, the first lot of an auction might close at 12:01pm, the second lot would close at 12:02pm, then the third lot at 12:03pm, etc.
