An illustrator based in London, UK. A bit of a jar collecter, stalker-ish photographer, fervent doodler - my name is Daniel Ido.

My illustrations combine japanese wood-block style, with pop surrealism. Often depicting surreal poses, fantastical scenes, and pop culture. Often times my art focuses on isolation, with use of singular characters in spaces, one scene with a core character, or animals - I seem to draw heaps of those.

I love meeting new people, telling other peoples stories, talking about weird conversations and drawing. 

Let me know if you’d be interested.
