Daniel Weatheritt is an Illustrator, Graphic Designer and Graphic Recorder based in Northumberland. His fascination and love of drawing started in Primary School as a member of Northburn First School Wildlife Club where he would fill many sketchbooks with drawings of garden birds and mammals. Daniel has always enjoyed creating characters and short stories and knew from a fairly young age that he would end up pursuing a creative career.

Growing up, he became interested in the diverse artistic styles and technical production of comics, graphic novels and picture books, which led to the study of Graphic Design at Northumbria University. He graduated in 2008 with first-class honours and shortly afterwards set up his own studio with the goal of establishing a unique and distinctive graphic style. Daniel loves designing for print, producing hand written type and favours traditional working methods. His favourite drawing technique is mixed media - pen & ink, pencils, watercolours and collage, all employed in the creation of surreal characters, environments and narratives packed with intricate detail and humour.

He also runs Airship Nelson - a fictional travelling art airship, planning and delivering graphic design and illustration workshops for children in schools, libraries and cultural venues across the North East.
