Daniel Hawksworth. Illustrations and Paintings
Dan Hawksworth is a Winnipeg born and raised artist who uses his art to let his imagination run free on canvas, paper, illustration board and other materials as he pays tribute to the heroes of popular culture and explores the realms of imagination. Dan works with inks on various media (paper, illustration board, and canvas) either as solely ink based paintings or illustrations, or to bring life and vibrancy to his acrylic works on canvas. Dan also has created wire and stone based jewelry as part of his artistic endeavours.
Primarily a self-taught artist, he has attended workshops as a member of Cre8ery to learn new techniques and broaden his horizons since joining as a member in the Fall of 2013. He has shown his work as part of the Cre8ery’s Members gallery, as a part of group shows in Winnipeg at various locations. He has also been a presence at C4 Central Canadian Comic Con's Artists Alley since 2014. His works have been sold locally and internationally and Dan maintains an active online presence on Instagram and Facebook.
On a regular basis he publishes cartoons featuring his character Dee Dragon, who provides a sideways look at life. He is also branching out into other stories with original characters as well as exploring collaborative efforts with other independent writers and artists.
Dan lives and works in Winnipeg, and has maintained a studio at cre8ery since 2014.
