His illustrations began appearing in Look and Learn in around 1967 and he was also a regular contributor to World of Wonder in the early 1970s, at which time he was living in Shooter's Hill and also acting as an occasional agent.

David Nockels contributed illustrations to many books on wildlife subjects between 1967-79, amongst the many titles he contributed to including Arthur by Ernest Dudley (1970) and the Atlas series from Heinemann (Atlas of Wildlife, Atlas of Plant Life, Atlas of the Sea, 1972-74); Young World Productions, Hamlyn, Bodley Head, Salamandar and Ward Lock also published his work.

In 1980 he began working for Methuen Children's Books and wrote and illustrated a series of pop-up books entitled 'Animals in Action' (1981) as well as two children's story books, Hungry Little Chimpanzee and Little Lost Duckling, both published in 1982.
