Thumbnails: Daniel Dos Santos

Thumbnails: 30 Second Interviews

Daniel Dos Santos is one of the genre's rising stars. In just a few years he's gone from being a rookie to a steady stream of book covers and gaming cards. Above is his cover painting for Christopher Pike's young adult novel, The Yanti.

What is your dream assignment?
Fully painted adaptation of the comic, X-Men #1.

Your most embarrassing illustration moment?

Left my painting in front of a space heater to dry,
and burned it like a marshmallow!

A career highlight?
Playing Pictionary with Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell...and winning. ;)

Good art. The structure of the dragons is especialy good. They look like there was a lot of thought put into how they would move.

I am just a huge fan of Daniel's work. Every cover that passed by my desk made me get all tingly inside like a child at Christmas. I really have to say he's one of my favorite contemporary cover artists.

Hey Dan:

If we had known that you would get such a kick out of winning pictionary we would have let you win the first game too, man!!! Oh, well, next time...

Boris and Julie,

Ha! I was going to mention that the only reason Dan's team won that game was because of his excellent guess-ers.

I like a game which you need use flyff penya to play. If you want to be online to play this game, I can borrow flyff moneyto you. When you have flyff gold, and than you can go on this game. Of cause, when you are first to play, you can buy flyff penya. If you have enough cheap penya, you will be able to different games.

sometimes you can go to earn the mabinogi gold for your own life and you can also get a lot of happiness in the game if you play the game well. you can brush the cheap mabinogi to upgrade and then you are very strong. You think that you want to play the game well and then you can get the mabinogi money for your own. you can go to buy mabinogi gold alone and you can give some for your friends; it can make you very happy I think. As long as you play the game you can get the mabinogi online gold as the rewards in this game.
