Since the mid 1980's, I have been deeply immersed in illustrating Science Fiction and Fantasy. Once I escaped from my lovely birth town of Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, I then headed south - to Kingston University, Surrey - where I did an Illustration/Graphic Design BA (Hons) Degree.
To date, I have illustrated the dust jackets for many hundreds of novels - for some of the best-known Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror authors; a list that includes , Frederik Pohl, Isaac Asimov, Greg Bear, Charles Sheffield, Robert Heinlein, Jack McDevitt, Ruth Rendell, Octavia Butler, Tanith Lee, R L Stine, Olaf Stapledon, Brian Stableford, Shaun Hutson and George R R Martin.
Arthur C Clarke, author of the classic "2001 A Space Odyssey" kindly wrote the foreword to a compendium book of my paintings "Only Visiting This Planet - The Art of Danny Flynn" (Paper Tiger). I have also worked in the Computer Games Industry, providing Concept Art for major projects with EA Games, Frontier and Traveller's Tales (Twinsanity - Crash Bandicoot).
As well as working on a series of pastoral fantasy landscapes for this website, I continue to pursue a long-term objective - to bring the moon to life. Over many years, I have been patiently creating a unique brand of quirky collectible characters - MoonAliens - who are hundreds of the universe's most colourful misfits and eccentrics who live in a secret "world" deep inside the moon!

As soon as time allows, I will be adding a few extra sections here; Favourite Artists, Albums, Movies, Books etc.
I will also be adding a section of my more obscure work, including some of my Art college projects.
