Professionally, Daniel works mainly as a sketch artist and illustrator in advertising where he helps visualizing key are for film, TV, streaming and video games. Personally he draws or paints whatever fits his mood. In his spare time, Daniel mostly draws women. He worked on a lot of projects and one of his latest is his book ‘DAYA’ which is a collection of his sketches and paintings from the last few years.
Frank Frazetta and Alphonse Mucha were two of his biggest inspirations when he grew up. Frazetta’s illustration of fierce women and warriors triggered Daniel and they became his fascination. He wants his paintings to tell a story. People need to get the feeling that his drawing is part of a storyline: something happened before and something can happen after.
