The Daniel Miyares Artist Collection

 

Daniel sees illustration as a basic form of expression that creates an instant connection between the head and the heart.

Hometown and school: I grew up in Simpsonville, South Carolina, and studied illustration at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. I was a summer intern in the Illustration Studio at Hallmark in 2001, and I became full time in June 2002.

What’s your collection all about? It’s all about a sense of place and how we can identify with a particular city or state. I used a sketchbook style of drawing to try and capture each locale. Whether you’re from there or just visiting, I hope these pieces can help you carry those cherished experiences with you.

 

Inspiration: I spend a lot of time in my sketchbook. Drawing has always been my way of trying to understand the world around me. This seemed like a very natural way to represent these amazing places. It’s like I got to take a little mental trip around the country.

Themes I’m drawn to:  I’m drawn to stories, whether it’s people, places or things. There are stories everywhere. I try to keep my eyes and ears open. You never know when you’ll come across one that’ll change your life.

Best advice: Think big. No matter what you do in your life, your ideas have the power to transcend your circumstances.

Happy place (when I’m being creative): My happy place is in my studio painting with the windows open.

When I’m not working: I’m goofing off with my wife and kids.
