Just Gettin' Started...

April 13, 2016

Just getting started. This is the first post and hopefully a long ways yet to go with many more posts to come.


My hope these days is to generate attention and garner exposure for my art and love of illustrating characters, and perhaps generate some opportunities to make creative stuff for new people and new projects.


Maybe that's you, or someone you know.


In the meantime, I'll keep making new and interesting paintings, characters, models, and designs.


Thanks for visiting this blog!

 who is thewoodenboy? 


Daniel lives in the Orient with his wife and son. He's a digital artist-designer who studied Media Arts and Animation receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2002.

He spent three wonderful years teaching design courses in character art, design fundamentals, artistic drawing, creative thinking, and digital art software as a Professor of Computer Graphic Design at Chungkang College of Cultural Arts in South Korea.

These days he shares his love of creativity by merging the drawing and acting skills of animation into teaching EFL to cute Asian children.


Weaving through and around his day job is his project, Character Issues, a brand of his vision and style of character art & design - plus whatever other creative art project that comes across his desk.

Thanks for visiting!
