Welcome to my website. I am Daniel Mitsui, a freelance illustrator and artisan. All of the drawings, paintings and sculptures displayed here were made by hand.
I specialize in detailed ink drawings on paper or animal skin parchment, although I work in other media as well.
I am especially inspired by mediaeval iconography and illuminated manuscripts; I also enjoy biological illustration, bookplate design, heraldry and cartooning.
I live in Chicago with my wife and our son. Please contact me at danmitsui [at] hotmail [dot] com if you are interested in buying or commissioning anything, licensing an image, sponsoring my training, exhibiting my work in a gallery, inviting me to speak, selling my work in a store, or subscribing to my quarterly electronic newsletter.
