Dan Markin

Calgary, Alberta, Canada
My name is Dan Markin and I am a visual artist currently residing in Calgary AB. I graduated from the Alberta College of Art & Design in 2010 with a Bachelor of Design majoring in concept illustration.

Since then I’ve been producing for games of a variety of genres and platforms. I have a passion for creating original settings, and rethinking approaches to existing ones. In an industry that is continuously evolving, I aspire to push the envelope of visual storytelling in innovative and challenging ways.
