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.

Previously I drew the webcomic Tested for the New York Department of Health AIDS Institute and 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 of 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.
