Collection: Daniel Joseph Durkin

Daniel Joseph Durkin is a Brooklyn New York resident and a proud Pratt Institute graduate who has been a freelance Illustrator for several years. Primarily as an artist of stationery he has an assortment of card designs available for purchase online and in stores across the United States, Canada, and Japan.

All of Daniel's illustrations are created on scratch board. The process begins with a piece of masonite that has been painted white, and then covered in a layer of matte black paint. He will sketch out his drawing in white pencil on the black surface which he scrape away to reveal the white layer underneath. The process is a reductive method similar to the creation of a wood block print or a linoleum cut. Once the black and white drawing has been completed Daniel will scan this into his computer and digitally add light layers of color to enhance the black and white.
