Beautiful scratchboard work by Daniel Danger

Daniel Danger
Daniel Danger is an illustrator and printmaker based in New England.

His ink and monochromatic approach gives his works a strong graphic sensibility, and a wonderfully spooky atmosphere, suggestive and foreboding. This is heightened by his enigmatic titles. (Roll over the images on the homepage/gallery of his website for titles.)

Danger titles his website “Tiny Media Empire” and apparently offers screenprints at times, though the Store section is not currently active.

There is little on his site about his process, but his blog goes into more detail, including process images.

According to entries there, he works in scratchboard on clayboard, a thicker variation of the normal scratchboard support, and an equally demanding and painstaking process.

Color is applied either in paint or digitally, sometimes in a combination of both.

    Wow…very inspiring. They are so well crafted… they avoid being too photographic and literal and present an altered but recognizable reality. I feel like I am seeing what the artist is seeing in their mind. Quite an accomplishment.
