Daniel Maw was born the middle of five children in a small Iowa town along the Mississippi River in December of 1982. He entertained himself by imitating the drawings of cartoonists he witnessed each day in print and on television. Today, he spends most of his time avoiding daylight and considering his place in the human predicament. He has reconciled his free natured spirit with the established practicality of this world by pursuing art through academia, having completed graduate art studies in the spring of 2010. If you wish to buy his pictures, he will sell them to you.
