Make good art...

Daniel DePaolo probably watched too many cartoons as child.
He spends a lot of time translating his love for animation, science fiction, and fantasy into a hodge-podge style that works in print, online, and anywhere your imagination can take it. He loves to draw animals, kids, and retro technology reminiscent of shows like Lost in Space, Buck Rodgers, and Battlestar Galactica.

Dan is a full-time illustrator working and living in Portland, Oregon. A small town boy with big city dreams, he works for a variety of regional, national, and international clients. Whether it's creating innovative posters for bands, logo and business card design for midwifery services, or comics for independent publishers, Dan prides himself on bringing something original to the table in everything he does.

When not drawing, Dan enjoys playing video games, petting his cat, and taking his girlfriend to the Oregon Coast.
