Dan studied illustration during his time at university and it was there that his interest in children’s illustration flourished. He has worked as a freelance illustrator for a number or years and works in a variety of media, including traditional painting techniques combined with digital.
Dan finds inspiration for his work comes from a love of design of the 1950s and 60s. His design heroes are Mary Blair, Alexander Girard and Charles and Ray Eames.
He obsessively collects mid 20th century and Scandinavian furniture, drinks tea by the gallon and lives with a mischievous dog called Bertie.
Dan’s clients include: Sterling Publishing, Scholastic, Egmont, and many more.
