Hey, I’m dan. :)

TL;DR - I write and draw comics.

I’m currently drawing the fantasy graphic novel Soul of the World, and working as a freelance illustrator from my studio in Pittsburgh.

I also draw the popular webcomic Tested for the New York Department of Health AIDS Institute. The comic has been featured on Webtoons.

In the past I directed and animated a 65-minute avant-garde animated feature film called Grey Island.

I host a podcast called All My Artist Friends and interview other creators on my YouTube Channel. On my Instagram (@ekisdan) and email newsletter I provide tips for creators to build confidence and make a living off their art.

I've been creating original works as a freelance artist for years, and continue to work with the coolest clients (ever) all over the U.S.

I studied animation at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, where I received a B.F.A. in Applied Media Arts.
