DANIEL CLARKE (South Africa)

The Art Department | World Tour

Daniel Clarke is an illustrator and character designer based in Cape Town, South Africa. In an in-depth interview Playgrounds director Leon van Rooij dives into Daniel’s artistic journey.

Daniel started his career in the animation industry but has worked in the fine art, illustration, comic book and live-action film industries as well.

Primarily focusing on the human figure, be it through character design or oil portraiture, he renders his subjects with a rich and energetic pallet that lends itself to their kinetic and exaggerated nature.

Daniel has worked for clients such as Netflix, National Geographic Kids, Nickelodeon and Penguin Random House.

We are happy he’s joining us for this special 24 hour live marathon of The Art Department!
