With over 30 years professional experience, I’ve illustrated well over 100 books. I work in all areas of the illustration industry from advertising to greetings cards, producing Fine Art Limited Edition Prints with Aquarelle Publishing Ltd. My work is all digitally hand drawn in Illustrator.

I live in Todmorden, West Yorkshire with my wife and our 3 children.

“Dan never fails to amaze me. From simple to complex, everything he produces is spot-on. He has created illustrations for me that range from small insects to Viking ships – all of incredibly high quality. He is efficient, easy to work with, and sticks to deadlines. I always look forward to seeing his finished illustrations. It is a pleasure working with him.”

“Our younger Thomas the Tank Engine books have been brought to life with Dan’s inimitable style.
His colours and great sense of fun have a broad appeal and are always well received.
Dan is quick and easy to work with, he just gets it, and gets on with it.
Can’t recommend enough!”
