Dan's first book, THE GUILD OF GENIUSES, was selected for the Society of Illustrators Original Art Show. The artist behind many highly praised picture books, he also created the animated TV show The Replacements. His clients include Macy's, Scholastic, Simon and Schuster, Random House, and Walt Disney Animation (just to name a few!).
Here's a great interview with more background on Dan, and of course his website is full of his illustrations. Dan, as I've read, also recommends checking out Drawn.ca. He says it's one of the best art blogs out there, and he checks it almost every day! Dan lives with is family, and bird, and cat, and rabbit, in Alhambra, California. Fun fact about Dan, he is currently working on a graphic novel!
