Meet....the concept artist (Daniel Clarke)

"I am in awe of some of the Russian painters Like Ilya Repin and Isaac Levitan and their understanding of light."

Before this talented, young illustrator joined Triggerfish, Daniel was working as a freelance conceptual designer and illustrator. His foray into animation began about five years ago with charcoal rub-out illustrations (ala William Kentridge) and hand drawn cell animation. Some of Daniel's favourite painters that he takes his inspiration from include Goya, Velásquez, Rembrandt, Picasso and Gustav Klimt. Two of his favourite contemporary painters are Lucian Freud and Phil Hale. As for the fictional character that Daniel most identifies with....."Batman, because I also don a mask and fight crime by night." Pin It
