Independent Illustrator DK

My artists name is DK and I am an independent illustrator from Australia.

“Everything Great Starts From Your Imagination”
this statement encapsulates the heart of all my work. Over time, I have created an animated, eccentric and energetic style that is loud, vivid and diverse.

I take a lot of inspiration from music, the punk scene and just a little bit of rebellious mischief.
Music inspires me a lot. I need to listen to upbeat music to make me keep working and think of crazy new ideas. So I listen to a lot of Punk, or heavy metal when I work. If I listen to pop or something mellow, I’d fall asleep half way through a drawing.

Hence why I had to enter this amazing competition I admire Joan Jett a lot and she often inspires me throughout my artwork. I love that art and artists can both inspire each other.

My daily life of my crazy family and watching the natural antics of animals, especially my very expressive dogs, create a lot of ideas for some of my eccentric characters.

I love to capture the nature and fun of the animals that I draw, this in turn has developed in to creating a clothing line named
“Party Animal Wear”
which taps into bringing out people’s individuality and sense of fun, whilst enjoying a moment of unconscious revelry.
“Show Your Inner Animal”
is the catch phrase for this lifestyle clothing brand.

I want to invoke emotion, with vivid, vibrant, eye-popping work, that is a visual feast, that may hurt your eyes just a little bit!
