This lovely drawing was submitted by the multi-faceted artist Daniel Williams. Born in New York, raised in the Bronx and Harlem, Danny attended Skidmore College then went on to work for Blue Sky Studios for 11 years. There he worked as Character Modeling Lead on Horton Hears a Who!, and modeler on Ice Age and Robots, among others, including numerous commercials. During this same time, Danny also worked as a digital modeling instructor at the School of Visual Arts and NYU. In 2008 looking for new challenges Danny headed west, settling in the Seattle area where he is now raising a family, working as a Character Artist on Guild Wars 2 for Arena Net and expecting a baby in a month! This postcard project is a deeply personal one for Danny. While his experience was different, he too was an orphan, and felt honored to be able to pick up a pen and contribute.
