Dan Whisker is a self-taught illustrator born in Essex in 1972. Dan moved to Kent as a child and finally settled in the green and tranquil village of Chartham; a stones throw from Canterbury where he lives with his loving wife of twenty years. They have three teenage children and three small dogs.
Growing up Dan was heavily inspired by 70’s Monsters and Alien ‘B’ movies. He loves to draw and paint images in his own detailed style. Dan creates his illustrations from the vast and diverse imaginary worlds between his (slightly hairy) ears. Dan loves sharp teeth, claws, evil eyes and creatures that want to take over the world!! And pretty much everything in between except clowns apparently—so you won’t find any here. Dan aspires to continually improve his art and produce images for children that he hopes will knock their socks off!
Dan draws using traditional media pencil and ink but, paints his images entirely in Photoshop.
