Hello, I'm Dan. I'm a graphic designer, illustrator, painter, print-maker and musician originally from rural Louisiana that lives and works in Austin, TX. I've done all of those things professionally for the past 15 years or so. Around 2004, I started to focus more on the print-making aspect of things, starting with letterpress and eventually getting into screen printing as well. A few years after moving to Austin, I got a job as the flat stock screen printer and letterpress specialist at Sanctuary Printshop. There I learned to juggle lots of different print jobs and work with other designers on printing their work. In 2013, I started printing for Nakatomi Inc while also focussing much more on freelance design and illustration work. I'm also starting a small print shop out of my garage called Biscuit Press, where I print my own work as well as the work of other artists. I have a 1949 Kluge open face letterpress as well as a full setup for screen printing flat stock posters and art prints.
To the left is a photo taken just before my band, Some Say Leland, spent all of that money to get vinyl records made. Taking a ridiculous photo with it just seemed like the right thing to do. Putting that ridiculous photo on my website also seemed like the right thing to do. Although, it's not very representative of me. I rarely wear sunglasses, smoke maybe one cigar a year, and only lay in a pile of money a few times a week.
