Dan May, Artist

We adore Dan May’s gentle monsters, sketched and painted with tenderness and whimsy. May’s work has a Sendakian feel but his vision is wholly his own, as sweet creatures roam soft landscapes and occasionally even encounter wee human counterparts. It’s hard to choose a true favorite among these great-hearted beasts, but Keeper of the Night is one of our faves and he has many beautiful prints for sale in his shop at Big Cartel. Also visit him on Facebook to see more creature sketches, finished works, and news. (May just completed 365 creature creations in 365 days, and the entire gallery is a charming dream to peruse, don’t miss it.)
