The illustrator/printmaker Daniel Danger has been repeatedly popping up on art and illustration blogs over the last year or so. Based in New England, he is well known for his screen-printed works and posters. They're often used for music and art festivals or by musicians such as Silversun Pickups, Modest Mouse, and The Decemberists. His works typically evoke dark but nostalgic feelings. Danger's scenes tend to come from a very "used" space; worn roads, abandoned houses, and neglected railroads. The figures in the works are sparse, and often don't feel attached to the landscape. Sometimes this is intentional and obvious, and other times it leaves the viewer guessing whether or not the figure's feet are touching the ground.
