Korean Caricature Portraits

June 14, 2019, 11:02 am


Interesting live drawings Korean children faces drawn last week!


I was asked to participate in a fundraiser fair by drawing cartoon versions of these beautiful kids.


It was fun but at the end of three hours I was in a full daze having done quite a few portraits without breaking my focus to get as many done as possible.


See the portraits here at Instagram!

Cute to Cool Designer T's

April 7, 2019, 10:10 am

Did you know?

I make t-shirt designs with my character art?

Yes, I do!

I even had two purchases this week for two different designs at two separate stores!

So, come visit and browse my shops at TheWoodenBoy

(I'd like to work out a method to offer you my designers-only base price if you become my ScratchBang supporter. Ask me for details!)

Jericho Story

February 25, 2019, 10:59 am

A fellow teacher was doing a puppet play with cut-out paper characters taped to wooden chopsticks about the Jericho story and asked me to render a few backgrounds for her class presentation. I had a few ideas and drew/painted them out. Take a look at them in my Instagram feed.

A Game of Cat and Mouse

February 25, 2019, 9:58 am

It's a game of cat and mouse with these two.

What's going on? This week, and last, I had been teaching ESL lessons using a short story called, "Belling the Cat", by Eve Rice, adapted from an Aesop's Tale.

The mice have a meeting to decide what to do about the new cat in town and the proposal to bell the cat was accepted - but there were no volunteers to do the dangerous mission. Read more on TheWoodenBoy.

Some call me Dan

February 22, 2019, 10:11 pm

Hi, I’m Daniel. Some call me Dan.

I just wanted to put a photo up of me to personalize my profile a bit more since I used my arts pseudonym and avatar at the front end.

It's the start of 2019 and this is what my life is like right now: I live in South Korea with my wife and son where I teach English at a Christian school. I also teach sword martial arts as a master instructor at the federation headquarters gym near Seoul.

I weave through this my art. On a daily basis, I use simple and funny line drawings to help me teach EFL to Korean kids — it really helps them to focus, be calm, and actually learn! From time to time I do freelance projects in graphic design or illustration… usually logos or character art for apparel/accessories. And when I'm not doing either of those, I'm illustrating my passion projects or writing fictional stories for these colorful, crazy, quirky characters I draw up from outta my heart and head.

Any support you can give will help to free my time up to focus on being productively creative. That's why I'm here on ScratchBang - and I hope that's why you're here, too!

Thanks for sharing, Dan. Your illustrations are great!
