An artist unbound

Dan Monroe is an artist who does not get pigeon-holed into one set genre, style, or medium.  He has produced fine art for gallery sale and exhibition, illustrated children's books, pencilled comics, taught art class in numerous venues, does character and book design, and has a cat named Thor.  Having started out as a traditional artist working in graphite, charcoal, watercolor, oils, airbrush, ink, pen and ink, and even clay sculpture Dan saw the benefit of the addition of digital art to his tool chest.  Several years ago when he purchased his first computer and small digital pad, Dan sat in front of the computer and started to play around with it.  It was not long before he was creating digital art and providing illustrations for a variety of online publications including Jim Baen's Universe, Walkabout Press, BeWrite Books, and Walker Sci-Fi.  Currently Dan works on a large variety of projects both digital and traditional.
