Darryl W. Funk Needs Your Help!

I'm having a bit of trouble getting interviews set up. Because of this interviews may not be a weekly thing on Fridays. Hopefully that changes soon! I'll try to have some other content set up for those weeks where I can't post an interview on Fridays.

I just found out that one of the great illustrators from my SCBWI chapter (Canada West) just lost his computer recently. It doesn't matter which area a person works in illustration because now they rely so heavily on computers. If you can please help him out and purchase one of his paintings at Also ask about commissions or prints while you're there!

I love Darryl's artwork because his style has developed from his love of comics. His strong lines and colour are both reminiscent of comics. I grew up on comics. When I was a kid I read X-Men, Fantastic Four, Power Pack, Amethyst and more! I think this has affected my work as well (To the point where I can't not outline in pen).

Like "Where the Wild Things Are"? You'll love this picture:!Wild-Thing-Self-Portrait/zoom/c16xn/image12on He also has some great illustrations of "Frog and Toad" and "Winnie the Pooh"!

I hope you will check out Darryl's work and support his art!

  1. I too was a mad keen comic reader in my youth. Loved them and loved the art. I am fascinated by the growth of graphic novels and am a regular fan of one online. I want to try my hand at it some time. We have comics in common Dani :) I shall pop over to look at your friend's art.
