About Daniel


Daniel Mackie is an award winning illustrator. Recently winning “Best in Book” in the Creative Review illustration Annual 2011. Daniel’s illustrations have provided visual solutions to countless briefs. Daniel Mackie Started practicing in 1995.

There is a lose theme to a lot of Daniels work, “animals in their natural habitat” and he has stated that he takes his inspiration from navy tattoos. In order for the paintings to work with so much detail, the shape of the animal is key in his design. It has to be instantly recognisable as the creature it represented, here Daniel took his cue from Art Deco, keeping the shape of the animal as simple as possible. Daniel is a big fan of the printmakers of the Ukiyo-e period which was between the 17th and the 20th centuries.
