Daniel's main inspirations of 18th and 19th century botanical illustration (such as those works by Ernst Haeckel), public radio, used bookstores, old maps, and mythology are all well-represented here. In "Horsefly," he represents this mythical chimera as something to be rediscovered, after having been long lost. Far from the sparkly concepts of fantasy today, this worn, statuesque creature is immortalized in traditional fashion, but not without an ever-lively snort.
Daniel's illustration, "Horesefly" was selected as the cover of "How We Are Hungry", by Dave Eggers. Eggers is most known for "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" (1999); this book, originally published in 2005 is his first a collection of stories.
