Dan was born and raised in Bridgend, but it was in Swansea that he fell in love with illustration. His work is primarily ink based, capturing often grotesque themes with detailed line work. This is mainly due to the fact that he finds computers untrustworthy and frightening. However, he has been striving to improve upon his digital skill, touching up his traditional drawings and experimenting with a variety of platforms. Dan wants to work in the tattoo industry for which his dark ink art style is well suited.
