Dan Monroe

Michigan based artist Dan Monroe has been creating illustrations and works of art for over thirty years. His work has been exhibited and sold in art galleries across the country, and he taught art at Western Michigan University. From his early days learning airbrush techniques in the street markets of Hawaii to formal classes at Kendall College, he has honed his craft, working as illustrator on a number of creative projects, including illustrating children’s books for such celebrities as Dennis Rodman, Erika Eleniak, Hector Camacho, Jr, Wesley Eure, Kevin Sorbo, and several others.

Dan has a very wide range of variety in subject matter and genres, from the illustrations for children’s books to hero adventure comic art, and sci-fi and fantasy paintings and illustrations.

Along with his art making, Dan also produces two television shows in downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan, with the Public Media Network (PMN). One of the shows is a kids adventure show which features the pirate “Captain Wallace”, which Dan also plays the part. The Captain Wallace Artsy Adventures, Inc. is also a non-profit organization which promotes the stimulation of imaginative creation of children.
