About Danny Kang

Hi, I'm Danny Kang and I create illustrations and animated illustrations. Welcome to my patreon page!

I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember and have been sharing my work online for some time. What started as occasionally posting sketches for friends turned into consistently sharing illustrations on a page, and has now grown to creating animated illustrations and process videos showing how I create each piece.

I've been going back and forth between illustration and animation ever since majoring in animation at college (RISD). I see them as brother and sister disciplines - similar yet also fundamentally different. I love rendering the beauty of details in paintings, but animation speaks in the language of efficiency so it can tell longer stories. And for years the pragmatics of these differences forced me to separate the two. My animated illustrations are a way for me to encapsulate who I am as an artist by combining what I love from each medium.

There's a word in Japanese called "Mugen" (むげん) that when written as "zero - end (無限)" means infinite or limitless. But it also has another reading when written as "dream - apparition (夢幻)" to mean dreams, fantasies, or visions. By looping each animated piece, I extract a moment of time - an ephemeral vision - and stretch it out into eternity.

This new central project has spawned a series that has driven me to grow my online presence and this is where patreon and your support come in! I want to continue developing my art by experimenting with both the conceptual ideas behind each illustration as well as pushing the medium of animated illustrations itself in the landscape of digital and social media. Your support will help me fund my online store, grow my social media through ads, attend more artist alleys at conventions, and most of all help me focus on creating more art! Here on patreon, I’ve created a space where people can share and support my artistic journey while getting back some cool rewards in return.

Rewards include:
-Wallpapers of artwork for both mobile and desktop
-ANIMATED wallpapers for mobile and desktop
-Process images and videos sharing thoughts and techniques that go more in-depth than what’s shared on social media
-Polls for things like what fan art to draw next
-Coupons to unlock deals on my online store that’s normally convention-only
-A free, exclusive gift for patrons who meet me at artist alleys

Thank you so much for your consideration, your support means the world to me!
