Hey there!

I’m Danny, and in case you hadn’t noticed, I like to draw.

Growing up as a kid, art was one of my favorite subjects. I loved to sketch, especially when it came to buildings and places. But somewhere along the way, that passion got pushed to the side. I went to university, double-majored in International Relations and German, and then, not sure what to do next, I moved from rural Ohio to Germany in 2012 in order to fulfill a different dream of mine – living abroad.

In other words, life took over and I forgot about art – for ten years, to be exact.

Yep, that’s right. I went ten whole years without drawing a single thing. But then, in 2017, something magical happened: creative people started to come into my life, I began following artists online, and I joined my local Urban Sketchers chapter here in Frankfurt – and bam! I was hooked.

Since then, I’ve filled page after page of my sketchbooks with ink and watercolor drawings – preferably on location. So if you ever see me out and about (I can usually be found hunched over a sketchbook with a paint palette in one hand and a fountain pen in the other), feel free to stop by and say hi! Or, or course, you can always send me a message: danny@dannyjhawk.com.
