So with that covered...
Hello & Welcome.
My name is Danny Jimenez. I’m a Junior currently attending Kendall College of Art & Design in pursuit of a BFA in Illustration, but as for my background.
I've been surrounded by art ever since I was in diapers, and from the day I stumbled upon this magnificent path, it has never ceased to amaze me. Art itself is hard to explain. But to me, it is nothing but numerous paths of endless emotions and travels that extend as far as your imagination and mind set would take you, and that is exactly what I strive to put into each and every one of my creations. A lot can be felt from viewing someone who really loves your work as well as the message you bring across to them, and with these unique and diverse creations, I would really like to share a bit of my life story and a trip inside my happiness, viewed through my fingertips.
Although I may be young; throughout the years of my artistic development I’ve earned a few awards as well as scholarships to further push my career and also help put me through getting a college education. Some of my awards and honors so far are:
