Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Danny Quirk

I'm an illustrator/fine artist new to the art scene. I joined this site to try and promote my work while all the while making valuable connections. I've been told that my work is more professional than that of my age, and although I may not necessarily agree with that statement (I know of many, very talented peers), I can say, my work ethic IS. I will always go the extra mile, to do the extra research, to stay up the extra hour, to make sure the work gets the extra attention. My objective in creating my work is to continually push myself, working hard to ensure that the newest piece, is the strongest piece, surpassing previous works, and raising the bar for ones to come.

Ideally, I want to get my master's in Medical Illustration. However, I love doing military themed works, and would like to get into editorial work for current events while I'm working on getting my master's.

At the moment, I'm struggling to find work. I'm aggressively self promoting/ showing in the NYC area, but am having issues getting real 'paying' jobs. One of, if not THE, major objective of having joined this site is to try and get work. So, if you're an Art Director/ Gallery owner looking for up and coming talent, don't hesitate to contact me. You won't be disappointed.
