Hey Everyone, 
I'm Dan, a Canadian born dual citizen LA transplant from Colorado.  Before moving to LA with my girlfriend and dog, I had spent my 20's around creatives, musicians and artists doing art on and off for about a decade, but it wasn't really until I moved to LA with the intention of focusing exclusively on art, that I started to get a clearer picture of what really good artists were doing to improve so quickly. 

Yes art can be subjective but for industry sake there are standards, and ignoring these standards will also get you ignored, which is the worst place to be as an artist. With all that pressure sometimes just getting started can feel incredibly daunting especially if you spend too much time comparing yourself on social media.  But it's really not that hard if you know how you learn and how to learn, cause then its just a matter of doing the work and setting attainable goals to build momentum and keep it.

My goal with First and Foremost is to help others understand this process, both through observation of other artists processes and by learning to develop their own. Your support allows me to focus on making a ton of content while sharing all my hurdles and epiphanies entering the concept art industry in LA and finishing Seaside Punks.  Sign up for the mentorship and I will give you access to past live-streams and a custom catered learning plan just for you.

Wow. You're an official sponsor of my work, and I couldn't be more grateful for it. As your reward you will get 1.5 hours of my, Nicks or a featured working guest artists time via skype 2X a Month.  The mentorship will focus on your own individual strengths and weaknesses and serve to boost those up.  Remember the path to mastery works best one thing at a time.
