Introduction
Danny Hellman was born on August 2nd, 1964, and was raised in Jackson Heights, Queens. Hellman graduated from Manhattan's High School of Art & Design in 1982, and took figure drawing classes at the Art Students League in subsequent years. During the mid-1980s, while struggling to earn a living as a bike messenger, Hellman drew gig posters for the band Floor Kiss, which he also pasted throughout Lower Manhattan late at night. In the Summer of 1988, Hellman stuffed a stack of these posters into a portfolio and found his way into the offices of the notorious Screw Magazine. Screw, (the first publication to buy Hellman's drawings) was soon followed by New York Press, the Village Voice, Guitar World, and others. By the mid-90s, Hellman had become a widely-published illustrator whose distinctive style was a favorite of art directors and readers alike. Beyond his illustration work, Hellman has drawn comic strips for DC Comics, Fantagraphics, Last Gasp, and other publishers. Presently, Hellman lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife and daughter.
