Dan Taylor has always had a passion for illustration and, since graduating with an illustration degree, has been working for many years as a freelance artist on a variety of projects. Much of his inspiration comes from love of 1950s and 60s design and his heroes include Mary Blair, Alexander Girard and Charles and Ray Eames. Dan works in a number of different media, including traditional painting techniques combined with digital. He obsessively collects mid-20th century and Scandinavian furniture, drinks tea by the gallon and lives with a mischievous little dog called Bertie.
Dan has worked prolifically with Campbell Books on their First Stories series, where his delightful illustrations can be found on the pages of Cinderella, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast and many more.
