Daniel Woods was born in 1957. He studied art and illustration at Brighton Polytechnic, gaining his degree there in 1979.
Though known internationally - he has been published in Japan - most of Daniel's work has been through major UK publishers such as Penguin, Pan and Hamish Hamilton, for publication in England and Europe.
Much sought after for for children's fantasy and folk tale illustration, a subject in which Daniel has completed a vast and bewildering array of books, posters and magazines. One worthy of special mention is The Magician (Paper Tiger), a large hardback fiction which spawned three similar titles the year after its release.
Daniel has also worked for several music publishers, producing album covers for such noticeables as Captain Sensible, TV Smith, The Damned, Artists for Animals and The Fish Brothers. He gained experience in the advertising field in the early years by doing story boarding at a London agency. On the more humorous side, he has produced numerous cartoons and T-shirts for the bands, and for charitable projects.
Daniel's larger scale works are often on display in exhibitions and galleries. These works include not just his famous fantasy pieces, but also sketches of architecture, landscapes, still lifes and portraits.
