Week 7 - Daniel Danger, Tiny Media Empire

This piece was done by Daniel Danger, creator of Tiny Media Empire. I came across his work while stumbling, and I was kind of surprised to find out that he has a vast amount of professional experience. Some of his clients include Universal Pictures, Dreamworks, ABC, and Penguin Books. He has also done work for Star Wars, Star Trek, The Walking Dead, The Black Keys, and Andrew Bird, among others. Most of his work has kind of an eerie, mystical feel to it. I picked this image, titled “I Have Troubles Today I Had Not Yesterday,” because I personally found it to be the creepiest. It depicts a dilapidated Wonder Wheel at Coney Island. I’ve always found Coney Island to be on the verge of creepy most of the time, but a deserted Coney Island is like the perfect setting for a horror movie. What makes this image especially eerie is the one girl in an otherwise empty theme park. It is a silkscreen print, like a lot of his other work.



  1. I love the deep shadows and the gradations shown in the density of the simple strokes.

  2. The contrast between the intricate lines are incredible. This piece is very well done.. I like the creepiness to it too.
