Artist Watch: Dan McCarthy

I somehow stumbled across Dan McCarthy's work months ago.  It was probably through Illustration Mundo (which is a great way to find new artists!).  McCarthy seems to do it all-- paintings, drawings, silk screens, t shirts, and posters!

His work reminds me a lot of Eyvind Earle's work-- graphic, bright colors, and nature based images.  But McCarthy also does these amazing gradients in his prints that add atmosphere and mood to the pieces.  The bright colors against stark black images really pull you in.  Sometimes he's subtle with the color, other times he's full on rainbow!

Check out more of Dan McCarthy's work here and his most recent show here!
